    Unanswered: Reporting Problem

    my app uses MSSQL 2k + VB 6.0+Crystal Reports 4.6

    ive a table of the form

    table PIC
    (
    studentid smallint,
    studentname varchar(50),
    studentpic image
    )


    i want to generate an id card for the students using the info from this table, using Crystal reports

    the problem is that the image is not displayed in the crystal report
    all other fields are present

    is this any problem with the image data type and crystal report?

    i do welcome suggestions from ur end to tackle this problem
    thanks in advance

    It's not a problem with the image data type. You need to "read" the contents of the field into a file and have an image placeholder on the CR designer to link it to the file at runtime.
    "The data in a record depends on the Key to the record, the Whole Key, and
    nothing but the Key, so help me Codd."
