if you are using crystal reports 8 or higher:

i'm not sure if you can change the picture on the report... rather, you wouldn't put one on at all at design time and would do something like this during run-time to add the picture:

Dim myCR as new CRAXDRT.Application
Dim myRpt as CRAXDRT.Report

set myRpt = myCR.openReport ("<path to report>")

myRpt.Sections(<whatever section>).addPictureObject "<path to picture>", <left>, <top>

HOWEVER, this is not part of the royalty free runtime so you will have to pay a licensing fee to do this.

You can try and play around with it a little and i'm very interested if you can find a solution since it would be very helpful with some work i'm doing with richtextbox control.  Basically, the picture on the report is an ole object and i believe it's a device independant bitmap.  Maybe (but i doubt it) you can work with the ole object to change the picture.  I hope you can!

good luck
