I spent three days to pass 3 images using datatable to my report , and always shows broken image icon.

What I have tried:

1- create 3 fields in SQL table with Picture type .
CREATE TABLE [dbo].[Table1](
	[CountryID] [int] NOT NULL,
    [Stamp] [image] NULL,
	[EachPage] [image] NULL,
	[LastPage] [image] NULL,
[CountryID] ASC

2- fill these picture in database, by converting them to array of bytes.
<pre>  If IO.File.Exists(ImagePath) Then
            Dim con As SqlConnection = New SqlConnection(System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings.Item("Main").ConnectionString)

                Dim cmd As SqlCommand = New SqlCommand("UPDATE [Table1] set   Stamp  = @Stamp  where CountryID='" & CountryID & "'", con)
         cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Stamp", SqlDbType.Image).Value = ConverttoBinary(ImagePath)

            Catch ex As Exception
                If con.State = ConnectionState.Open Then
                End If
            End Try

        End If

3 - in visual studio , I've been created a Dataset contains a data table with these three fields "the Name is exactly the same".
Dataset screenshot
4- create a blank report , and I added this dataset as report data source .
as shown here in this screenshot :Report
5-Set report datasource the filled dataset .
Public Function Get_DataTable(query As String, DataTableName As String) As PicturesDS
       Dim conString As String = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("Main").ConnectionString
       Dim cmd As New SqlCommand(query)
       Using con As New SqlConnection(conString)
           Using sda As New SqlDataAdapter()
               cmd.Connection = con

               sda.SelectCommand = cmd
               Using dsEmployees As New PicturesDS()
                   sda.Fill(dsEmployees, DataTableName)
                   Return dsEmployees
               End Using
           End Using
       End Using
   End Function

6-show report.
Private Sub TstImage()

    Dim cryRpt As ReportDocument = New ReportDocument()
    '     cryRpt.Load(Server.MapPath(ReportPath))

    CrystalReportViewer1.ReportSource = cryRpt
    Dim SQLQuery As String = "Select *  FROM [Table1] where CountryID =1 "

    cryRpt.SetDataSource(db.Get_DataTable(SQLQuery, "DTPic"))

End Sub

the result like this :

Thank you for your advice , but this will not fix my issue , am I right ?

Fixing the security vulnerability will fix the bigger issue of your data being deliberately or accidentally altered or destroyed, or sensitive data being exposed inappropriately leading to a massive fine.

Ensure you have added Image handler in web.config. Below article has required info.
