I have a customer that has pre-printed invoices.  He would like to have my system print them including the pre-printed information.  I have a crystal report that prints the header, body and footer.  What I would like to do is take a jpg or bmp image and insert it into the background of the report, then print the data over the top of it and sent it all to the printer.  Is that possible with Crystal 8.5?
