With dtarptBarcodes.Sections("SB_Detail")
  .Controls("image1").Picture = LoadPicture("c:\vbtik.bmp")
  .Controls("image1").Picture = frmMain.Picture1.Picture
End With

Hi Grunge,

The emoreau comment: Set .Controls("Image1").Picture = LoadPicture(myFilePath) work properly.

You can put the code on DataReport_Activate() event.

'Hope will help.

Private Sub DataReport_Activate()


With dtarptBarcodes.Sections("SB_Detail")
Set .Controls("Image1").Picture = LoadPicture("c:\vbtik.bmp")
End With

End Sub


this does not work...
It doesn't offer an error message (infact I can step thorough) but there is no picture displayed...
