VS2010 and Crystal Reports Loading Image at runtime

Previously when using VB6 and Crystal Reports I was able to specify the contents of an image at runtime.  This allowed the invoicing app to use the customers letterhead loaded from a jpg on their pc.  I need to be able to achieve the same thing in VB.NET and Crystal Reports (VS2010) but it seems that I have to specify the image at design time rather than runtime.

My advice to you not to use Crystal report any more. this product is taken over by SAP. you can use Microsoft Reporting.

The second part of the project shows exactly how to use the blob column type to be used in the report and fits perfectly. Thanks
