Add Student Picture to Report

Add Student Picture to Report

(OP)
I am using Crystal 9.22.634. I have a database file with student names and the name of their picture. For Example:
John
Smith
123.jpg
The pictures are located in a different area of the server. Is there a way I can add the picture to my report?

RE: Add Student Picture to Report

If you wish to embed it inside the report itself, you need to move to a later version of Crystal (where an image can have a dynamic image location expression).

If you are willing to add the image to a pdf export, one of the 3rd-party Crystal report schedulers (see list at http://www.kenhamady.com/bookmarks.html) allows you to automate the process of exporting to pdf and using a Crystal formula to control the process of adding an image to the exported pdf.

Thanks for the link. I couldn't find anything about adding an image to the exported pdf.
 

RE: Add Student Picture to Report

Sorry, forum rules don't allow me to specify the name of the scheduler.  If you contact Ken Hamady, he would be able to tell you which tool is the correct fit for this use scenario.
