Adding blob field removes any item that doesn't have image in database - see post referenced below

I had this question after viewing BLOB IN CRYSTAL REPORTS 10 - IF NO IMAGE IN DB - HOW TO PRINT NO IMAGE AVAILABLE.

I am having the exact same issue.  I'm dropping an image directly from our database into my crystal report creating a blob. As soon as I do that any item in the database that doesn't have an image is removed from the report.  I have tried every type of isnull statement I can think of and nothing works.  The only way I see the entire database is to remove the blob completely.  It appears the post I referenced never was resolved. Does anyone have any ideas?

Are the blobs in the same table?

No, the blobs are in a separate table ( ITEMPIC.ImageBMP).

That was the problem.  I'm not a Crystal Expert and didn't realize the importance of using "Left Outer Join".  Thank you for your help!!
