Crystal Report Display word documents
Posted on 2013-12-23
Crystal Report 2011 version 22.214.171.1248 RTM
I have an oracle database that contains one page word documents. The word documents are stored in the oracle database as a BLOB , The word format is Microsoft word 97 – 2003. I need to read and display the word document in Crystal reports 2011.
I can successfully read the BLOB from the oracle data base but crystal report thinks it is an IMAGE. How do I get the BLOB image converted and display it as a word document in crystal reports.
Or are there other solutions to dynamically put word documents into a crystal report.
The word documents in the database change daily with new one being added all the time. Currently there are more than 5000+ documents.
