I have a Crystal Report that I need to display an image based on 1 of 3 values in a field. I have three image files that are not in a the database and need to be displayed based on a fields value. I can NOT use VB/C# code to preload a datatable or do any manipulation. The report is called by another program that I have no control over. The program just runs the report and based on what is selected I need to show the correct image.
