Hi there,

I have profile report and we'd like to add a picture of the person to the report.  The path to the picture is a field in the report.  (This path will change depending on the profile being pulled).

I'd like the report to bring up the picture according to the file location - but can't seem to get this to work.

Can someone please provide some direction?

Thank you -
CS

Add a picture: select menu Insert ->Picture
Right click on the picture object and select "Format Graphic..." , select the second tab "Picture" and click the button "X-2" on right of "Graphic location" and insert a formula which points to the right file ( I guess this will be the field , which contains the file path)

That works for Crystal XI and later.

Earlier versions (CR10 and before) needed the picture in the database
