I am trying to display the varbinary data on a crystal report after converting it to original bytes. The content that I saved is a pdf content. I followed this approach to achieve as per my requirement

Crystal Reports Display Images From Database Asp.Net[^]

So can some one help me how can I display byte[] data on to the report

What I have tried:

SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["MyCon"].ConnectionString);
string strSelect = "SELECT FileData from Documents where ID = 26";
SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand(strSelect, con);
SqlDataAdapter dAdapter = new SqlDataAdapter(cmd);
Byte[] bytes = (Byte[])dsReport.Tables[0].Rows[0]["FileData"];
dsReport.Tables[0].Rows[0]["FileData"] = bytes;
CrystalReport1 rpt = new CrystalReport1();
crystalReportViewer1.ReportSource = rpt;

I am pretty certain you cannot display a PDF within a report. The report viewer will know how to render an image converted from binary but will not be able to deal with a PDF.
