SSRS 2008 background image in subreport body is not displayed in PDF

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I have developed a ssrs report (rdl) and it's subreports in BIDS 2008.  Upon upload of the report and subreports to the report server along with images (in a separate folder), the report is rendered successfully with the desired data and all images.  However, when exporting to PDF or invoking the report via the report viewer with PDF output, the subreport's body image is not presented while the main report image and report, subreport data fields display OK.  Image sources are 'External' and the image path is specified starting with a '/' for the home directory.
