I have some images(stored as Blobs) that I want to print in a Crystal report. They are stored in a SQL Server 2000 database as an Image data type. I use Crystal 10. I created a quick little report to read these & print a report. All that came out was a box(I had the field bordered). The image did not display. How do I get them to display? Do I need Crystal 11?

I just found out that the Blob contains GIF images. Could this be the cause of it not displaying?

Thanks. I have upgraded to Crystal 11. The Blob is is actually stored as an image data type in the database. I dragged the field to the report but it still did not display. I tried to add an OLE object & use the graphics location formula in format graphic editor. No luck because you can't use a blob as part of a formula.

Only Crystal XI can report BLOBs. You'll need to upgrade.
