Hi

I've used the process of creating a dynamic image table and adding it to a crystal report at runtime many times in vb.net, but cannot get the same principle to work in an asp.net (VB) crystal report.

Basically I have a main report which will display the data, and a sub report that will contain the report title and the dynamic image.

The main report shows the data OK, but the subreport will not display the dynamic image, I just get a blank space.

Here is my code:

Public Sub CrystalDynImage() ' As DataTable

        Dim dt As New DataTable("Images")

        Dim drow As DataRow

        'Dim ds As New DataSet

        dt.Columns.Add("img", System.Type.GetType("System.Byte[]"))

        drow = dt.NewRow()

        Dim fs As FileStream

        Dim br As BinaryReader

        fs = New FileStream(Session("logopath"), FileMode.Open)

        br = New BinaryReader(fs)

        Dim imgByte(fs.Length) As Byte

        imgByte = br.ReadBytes(Convert.ToInt32((fs.Length)))

        drow(0) = imgByte

        dt.Rows.Add(drow)

        br.Close()

        fs.Close()

        rep = New ReportDocument()

       rep.Load(Server.MapPath("installations.rpt"))

        repsub = rep.OpenSubreport("report_header.rpt")

        rep.Database.Tables(0).SetDataSource(ds.Tables("installs"))

        repsub.SetDataSource(dt)
        Session("projectreport") = rep
        Me.CrystalReportViewer1.ReportSource = Session("projectreport")
        Me.CrystalReportViewer1.DataBind()
        Me.UpdatePanel2.Update()

  End Sub

Any thoughts

Thanks
