Please clarify: what logic maps between the path stored in the database and the path the image is stored under? If 1-to-1, simply set it as the 'Graphic Location' expression.  If not 1-to-1, use that logic to convert from the database info to the actual path.

Try this

Insert a PICTURE object on the report
Right click the image
Click FORMAT GRAPHIC
Click the PICTURE tab
Click the FORMULA BUTTON to the right of GRAPHIC LOCATION
Insert the database field with the graphic as the location
Click SAVE AND CLOSE
Click OK
