I am trying to find a way to display a spreadsheet as Image in App Sheet. Can I do that?

Can you clarify a bit? Are you capturing a screenshot of a spreadsheet somehow and want to store it as image? Hmm, have not heard of it; what is the use case?

@RezaRaoofi Hello !

I have a Sheet that I call “Record” and this sheet only will shows the result of the other sheets,

is for reference only (or display) . I want Appsheets access to that “Record” Sheet but only with the purpuse of reference

and I want Appsheets shows the same format that I have in google sheets, for that reason this "Record " Sheet need to be like a Image or Picture …This Explination make sence for you?

Well, the main idea on AppSheet platform is to use spreadsheet as data source and your app as front-end for displaying and updating data, so the less you use spreadsheet in traditional way the easier life would be! From what you explained I can tell you would still rather use spreadsheet for display too, therefore the need for having its image inside app. I don’t think you could automatically take a picture of the spreadsheet, even if you could that picture would have been changing periodically, am I right? I think you could either publish the spreadsheet and use the url as a link in app, so users could open it in browser, or take a snapshot of the spreadsheet and store it in your app as an image column type.
