crystal report blob field rendering twice

We recently upgraded our C# web app from .net 1.1 to 4.0. We use Crystal Reports for VS 2010 for invoices, and within the invoices, we load a blob image of a copy of order via a SQL database.

In our previous version, everything worked fine.

Since the upgrades, the blob image loads, but there is a tiny version of the image on top of the top left corner of the image.

I've verified the database. I've removed the blob and added it back.  I've loaded the latest CR Service Pack.

The problem persists.

Does it happen if you create a new report with just the blob field?

Have you saved and run the report after deleting the blob?

Yes.

Yes.

I appreciate your help. I've never seen anything like this in the 10+ years we've been using this set up.

Problem solved. Here's how I did it:

I deleted the Blob that was inserted into the report via drag and drop from the field explorer.

Then I:

1. Insert OLE Object > From File
2. Found a random image and clicked ok.
3. Right click > Format Object
4. On the Picture tab, clicked the formula icon for the graphic location
5. Selected the column from my datasource.
6. Crossed fingers and ran the report
7. Problem solved.

Hope this can help someone else!
