Hi folks,

Within our database application we have a number of staff, each of whom has a photo saved as a jpg file on the server.
We have developed a report with information about each person and would like to have the relevant photo displayed on the page with the person's info.

I am using Crystal Reports to create the report in a Visual Studio 2008 (VB) application.

The background database is a MySQL database running in a Windows environment.

I have imported the photos into a specific table for the purpose as BLOB data.

In the design mode of the Crystal Report I can see the picture for the first person on the report but when I preview the report the photo is not displayed - only the border of the relevant field.

Can anyone advise how I may achieve the display of a different image on each page of the report.

Thanks in advance,

For the graphic control in your report, you will have a property that can take a file path. Set that to the field that has the jpg file name. That should do it, I think.

Hi folks,

Just typical - no sooner posted a help request than I get it working. All fine now. Issue was with importing the BLOB info to the table.
