so far, I have had no success whatsoever with including images into spreadsheets, texts or reports.

Such images either reside in a directory on a server and are accessible via a samba share and http, or they are generated on the fly and accessible via http.

Putting a hyperlink into a spreadsheet displays the hyperlink rather than the image. Inserting a frame into a text document and assigning a hyperlink to the frame in order to have the image displayed within the frame displays nothing but the empty frame.

There doesn't seem to be any way at all to display images in a report.

Is it entirely impossible to integrate images?

Currently, I need to display EAN-13 barcodes in a document created via mail merge from data in a spreadsheet. Since the barcode extension for LO does not work, I resorted to creating the barcodes on the web server. But there is no way to have them displayed with LO.

If it's possible to include images, I need LO to query the web server with an EAN number so that the web server can create the corresponding barcode and insert it into the document created via mail merge. The correct URL to retreive the barcode could be created within the spreadsheet.

How would I do this?
