It's true that the Crystal Reports version included with VS 2003 can't load images from file paths. But can load from database image objects.

So, if i assume that you don't need all the images for the same document:
- you can store the paths in the database
- create a normally empty table with a picture id and a BLOB image column
- and if you need to export an image, you can load the images to the database temporarily, and use this temp table from crystal reports
- then clear the table

With this you can store the images outside the DB, and still use them in CR

RobZ, thanks for the "damn retards"...you ******

How would you handle the Image being 'null' in the Report.
I mean, I add images, but some of them can be null. I need Crystal Reports to handle this by putting N/A, or hiding the image.

Any suggestions? (XI, Release 1)
