I have a sql server report that has an embedded image file.  When I open the rdl, I see:

  <ReportSections>
    <ReportSection>
      <Body>
        <ReportItems>
          <Image Name="Image1">
            <Source>Embedded</Source>
            <Value>LetterHead4</Value>
            <Sizing>FitProportional</Sizing>
            <Height>1.57292in</Height>
            <Width>7.47918in</Width>
            <Style>
              <Border>
                <Style>None</Style>
              </Border>
            </Style>
          </Image>

Open in new window


My DBA's have left and I don't know how to find this file.  After I modify this file (if I can find it), I need to replace it with original.  Any suggestions much appreciated.

thanks
Nick

Have you tried running the reports on the report server and then right clicking over the image and selecting 'save picture as'? This should work with 'external' images but might not work with embedded images.

If not, try this method to extract the embedded image from SSRS
