Displaying an imported PDF File from an Oracle BLOB into Crystal XI
Posted on 2006-06-08
I am designing a report which displays data items from an Oracle data source. As an appendix, I want some pre-defined PDF files to be displayed.
My solution has been to load the PDF into an Oracle BLOB field.
However, when I add this field to the report, nothing is displayed. It works fine for jpg files, so I was hoping that the same principle applied to PDF files.
Is there a better way to do this? I don't really want to create a report (or subreport) with the same information as the PDF. I just want to import it into the report for displaying.
