I am using Visual Studio 2005. I am using Crystal Reports with MS SQL Express. I have a table in my database/dataset with a column of type "Image". When I drop the "Image" field onto my Crystal Report and run it, all fields and subreports are blank (as well as the image field). If I remove the field, all other fields and subreports show up fine.
I have created a test form that simply injects an image into the database and shows the image from the database on the form. This shows that I am injecting the image properly and that the image does exist inside of the database. I am also sure that I have my tables linked properly via primary and foreign keys within my Crystal Report.
My goal is to show images dynamically on the report. From my research, passing the images through the database is the only way to do this with Crystal Reports inside of Visual Studio.
