Inserting Images in crystal reports 9 dynamically

Hi All,
I'm using visual studio 2005 and crystal reports 9 and generating a dataset of Bar graphs which I'm inserting dynamically into the BLOB fields of the reports. Each bar graph can have a maximum of 10 bars,
My problem is if the bars are more than 10 then inserting them into report is getting difficult because I'm unable to create sections dynamically.
The maximum number of bars is not fixed and may vary up to 90, I can insert  9 sections for each graph and suppress the empty ones but I have around 300 Graphs which makes around 2700 sections (Extreme case) which is not possible.Please help me to solve this problem.Thanks in Advance.

ARe you generating pictures which are bar graphs or are you generating the bars and trying to insert them into a graph?

Why can't you pass the data to Crystal and let Crystal generate the graphs?

Hi mlmcc,
  I'm generating .bmp images which are bargraphs.

I don't think there is a solution based on the requirements.

Is it not possible to generate the graphs in Crystal?

Though I suspect with that many you might still have an issue with the number of sections.

It would seem to me that it would make more sense to generate a report for each group of up to 10

Still I  think there will be a problem as the total sections allowed per report is only 80 and if I do so then the count of sub reports will be increased.
Is there any reporting service which satisfies these conditions?
Thank you.

I don't know of one.

I was thinking that the VS2005 application could generate separate reports so that the most sections in any report would be 9 for a graph with 90 bars.

Thanks for your response, separate reports will work but in my case all graphs should be in one report.Is there any option for generating separate reports and merge as single report?

They could be exported to PDF then merged with a utility like PDFMerge
