I am creating a product catalog with pictures in CR 11.  The program I am using (DacEasy v.14) stores the image filename in the database (Pervasive.SQL 9.50).  Images can be stored as jpeg, gif or bmp formats.

I have a OLE Object in the Crystal Report and in the Picture Format Editor, I have the following formula for the "graphic location":

"\\Pecanpie4\daceasy\2006\AC\IMAGES\" + toText({ProductBitmap.FileName})

This works fine for the jpeg images but does not for the gif or bmp formats.

What do I need to do to make CR "see" the gif and bmp formatted images?
