Cant attach a pdf to a crystal report

I have a shared variable in a Report Header...I then have an ole object in the Report Footer..
My formula  ( X-2) for the Graphic after I have inserted the .pdf is

WhilePrintingRecords;
Shared StringVar SCode;

"\\Share\"+SCode+".pdf"

I believe the formula only works for graphics

Have you put the value of the folder path in the shared variable?

What version of Crystal?

A possible solution is to use a UFL (User Function Library) to convert the PDF file to an image file (on the fly) and set the Graphic Location expression to the new file. You can build your own or use a 3rd-party UFL.
