Crystal Reports 2011 dynamic image

My users need to dynamically  add their signature to the reports that they produce. The signatures is saved on the network as .jpg  file. The path for each user signature is stored in one of the database fields (e.g. C:\Signarures\John.jpg).
It appears that in crystal reports you can insert a picture and then set the path of the picture dynamically by using the formula with the filed containing the path. However, so far I was unable to get it to work. No error messages, the picture will simply not change. Any advice?

Is this when you are previewing the report?

That is how I understand it should work.

What is happening is that I have to select one signature picture from C:\Signatute\... in order to insert the picture and this piscture is what it shown all the time even though the path in the field is for a different signature. The images above are of the image setting object (Right-click --> Image Format etc)

Actually it is working!!! The problem was that when I inserted the picture the first time I used a signature insted of a blanck picture. Therefore, if I had no signature picture for one of the employee, the system automatically shows the default initial picture that I use to crete the picture object, giving the impression that it was always displaying the same thing.

Good information.  I had forgotten about that issue.  I don't work with images at all in the reports I build.
