Or you can store the image in the database as an OLE object and then CR will display fine.  Most db's support this but it may not be appropriate for your situation.

you can accomplish this by using the RDC in VB. place an ole object and the database field that contains the image path into the detail section. then read this value out in a section event and modify the instance of the ole object accordignly. here is a sample in version 9 of crystla reports

hi thanks for the response

I call the report using asp

frodoman, I was also trying that by storing the image in the database, but it is not the solution we want. we dont want to store images in the database. thanks for the suggestion anyway.

Ewaldl

I am not using VB, can it be done in crystal report 9 alone. can i generate a report using the method you suggested.
how do i modify the instance of the ole object and you are mentioning of a sample, i dont see any. where can i find the sample.

if you are using ASP you can set this at runtime.  here is an article demonstrating

http://support.crystaldecisions.com/library/kbase/articles/c2005824.asp

you will need  to do a select from your datasource as well and before doing this, youll need an identifier to find the proper image.  perhaps a select box prior to claling the report to identify the proper value.  form ore specific help post some sample code.

anilkumar7,
sorry, i had forgotten to post the link ;-)
http://support.crystaldecisions.com/communityCS/FilesAndUpdates/cr9_vb_rdc_loadpic.exe.asp

myne,
the article you refer to can't be used in asp as asp can't use section events.

so if you are determined that the images are not to be saved in the database, you could only fill a recordset in asp that contains the images and pass this to the report. try the genric example ADORecortsetExample.zip from http://support.crystaldecisions.com/communityCS/FilesAndUpdates/aspxmps9.exe.asp

mnye,
asp simply doesnt have the capability. if you found a way to get the rdc's section events to work in asp then i would love to know how ;-)
