Quote a snippet from our software Maximo,hope this helps

roger

1. With he report open in eRDPro, add an AcImageControl to the report

(a) Under the properties for this control, leave the Filename property
empty.

(b) Set EmbeddedProperty to ImageFactoryTime

(c) Click the methods tab and locate the Sub OnRow. Click Override and
insert the following code:

   if  row.getvalue("workorder_siteid") = "BEDFORD"  then
            FileName = "BEDFORDLogo.bmp"
        else
            Filename = "TEXASLogo.bmp"
        end if

(d) Click Update and Close to close the component editor.

2. Next, you will need to add an entry to the acserverconfig.xml on the
Actuate server for the search path - this path will be the location
where the images are stored on the server. You can use either an
absolute path (c:\maximo_images) or a UNC path
(\\servername\maximo_images). If using UNC, ensure you can access the
files by going to Start | Run and typing in the UNC path.

(a) On the Actuate server, navigate to the Actuate7\Server\etc folder

(b) Open the acserverconfig.xml file with Notepad or Wordpad.

(c) Go to the Server section. It should appear as follows:

<Servers>
        <Server
          Name="end00591"
          PMDPort="9100"
          OSVersion="Solaris 8"
          ActuateBuild="60F040316"
          LogDirectory="D:\Actuate6\Server/log"
          PMDIPAddress="end00591"
          ActuateVersion="6 Service Pack 1"
          ServerIPAddress="end00591"
          RequesterRSAPIVolume="end00591">
         <ReportingService
           .....

(d) Prior to the ReportingService entry, add the following (replacing
the path in the Item tag with your path to the images):

   <ConnConfigSearchPath

SettingType="List">
<Item>\\myserver\maximo_images</Item>
  </ConnConfigSearchPath>

The end result should appear as follows:

    <Servers>
        <Server
          Name="end00591"
          PMDPort="9100"
          OSVersion="Solaris 8"
          ActuateBuild="60F040316"
          LogDirectory="D:\Actuate6\Server/log"
          PMDIPAddress="end00591"
          ActuateVersion="6 Service Pack 1"
          ServerIPAddress="end00591"
          RequesterRSAPIVolume="end00591">
           <ConnConfigSearchPath
   SettingType="List">
   <Item>\\myserver\maximo_images</Item>
     </ConnConfigSearchPath>
         <ReportingService

  (e) Restart the Actuate Process Management Daemon Service (PMD).

You need to add a section to your acserverconfig.xml file under the
server tag
<ConnConfigSearchPath SettingType="List">
<Item>c:\Program Files\Actuate7\Server\images</Item>
</ConnConfigSearchPath>

then you can reference any images you have saved in the directory.  Also
there is a property of the image control that should be set to
ImageViewTime
