I am currently having a problem of displaying images that should be dynamically generated based upon an inputted parameter by the user.  I can't get any images to display from the table where they are stored. I have gone through the image wizard and tried the different variations.  I have also tried storing the images as an image file as well as a binary file, but neither file type will display an image.   Does anyone know how to fix this problem?  Thanks.

Are you positive the image files are not corrupt before it goes into the database?  Do they display right after they are made before being put into the database?

Yes I am positive the image files are not corrupt.  I am able to create a report within Access and the images display, but when I either import the report into SQL Reporting Services or create a new report within SQL Reporting Services, none of the images will display.  I have tried several different attempts at trying to get the images displayed but I stil can't figure out what I am doing wrong.  Any Help?

No, I still have no corrected this problem yet.  I have also tried using this expression, =System.Convert.FromBase64String(Mid(System.Convert.ToBase64String(Fields!Picture.Value),105)) , and still I get the small box with the red x in it.  Do you have any suggestions?

I'm sorry, that expression i said earlier that didn't work, actually does work.  I put the expression in the wrong value field that's why I was still have an error.
