Hi,
How can I add ole picture in crystal 11.
I used "insert"->Ole Object->Create From File with Link option.
I put picture on report. When run report I see only black square with file name located bottom.
Why I don't see picture.
Shoul I do something more ?
Thx
henry

You are running from the Crystal designer? Just doing a preview?

I just tried the same thing and got the same result.

Have you tried inserting it as a picture?

I got it to work
After inserting as you tried
Right click the OLE OBJECT
Click FORMAT OBJECT
Click the PICTURE tab
Click the Formula button next to GRAPHIC LOCATION
Enter the CAT-FILE string of the location

It worked for me with jpg.

With BMP the picture shows in the designer and also when preview.
