I have 5000 pics which i am storing in harddrive. All pics are numbered is id.
The id pertains to details of an employee.
i.e If id 1 has name as a, his pic will be stored as 1.jpg in the harddisk. In this table there is a field path which contains the path of the picture.

Now i want to generate the employee ID Cards.
How do i achieve this. It has predefined structure where id and pic and others details should automatically be picked and then on print clik the data should go for printing.

I am using Vb.Net windows programming.

I would suggest you do this in Crystal Reports purely for simplicity. Its not difficult to use. import any 'one' of the photos to the report and the other fields from the database then if you view the properties of the photo you can change the Graphic Location to the field in your database.

With Crystal XI and later (CR 2008 and CR 2011) you can use the file path stored to change the picture as each record is displayed.
