"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi Mateen,

you have two options :

1.- Place the col "picture_path" in your dw and check its "Display as picture" property.

2.- Create a computed field in your dw with the expression "bitmap(picture_path)"

Hope it helps
