I need to display images in a SharePoint 2013 list based on the following criteria:

If 'Member' Column = yes then display Green tick icon (URL listed below)

If 'Member' Column = no then display red cross icon (URL listed below)

I need some assistance with my Formula based on the first criteria only and it keeps producing errors:


I would appreciate some help with the syntax as I am very new to this and think its to do with lack of brackets etc.Thanks in Advance.

SharePoint user.

You Can try this code to achieve your functionality:

="<div><img style='float: left' src='http://isourcedev.walfs.local/sites/wfin/SiteAssets/"

Source: Images in calculated columns

Also you can try this code if your choice is restricted to Yes/No :

="<DIV><img src='http://isourcedev.walfs.local/sites/wfin/SiteAssets/"&IF([Completed?], "Tick%20Green%20Circle.png", "Tick%20Red%20Circle.png")&"'></DIV>"

Source: Using a Calculated Column to show Images

If You need empty for Member = No

=IF([Member?], "<DIV><img src='http://isourcedev.walfs.local/sites/wfin/SiteAssets/Tick%20Green%20Circle.png/><DIV>", "")
  • Thank you very much for responding. I realised just before I read your post that I needed a space between img src which solved the issue for me so thankyou for confirming this. But I need to add another criteria to the formula to say if 'Member' = no, then blank (we don't want an image in there). How do you add blank to the formula?

  • Have added formula for Member=No in my answer.. Feb 8, 2017 at 5:50
  • Hi. Thank you - you have been very helpful so far. I need some further assistance please on how to combine the two criteria (Yes = image and No = blank or no image into the one formula). So far I have this formula for yes (which works) so can you please complete the formula for me with both criteria added in there:

  • And I also want to centre the symbol (image). Is that just: style='float: centre'
