Blob not showing on Crystal report at runtime

Blob not showing on Crystal report at runtime

Blob not showing on Crystal report at runtime

(OP)
Using VS 2008 with embedded Crystal Decisions.

I have a program that builds an image and stores it in a database BLOB field. All that works great. I then created a crystal report, using Crystal version 10, to display this BLOB field and that works great.

However, when I open the crystal report from my program the BLOB field does not display. Why would it display just fine when I open the report in crystal 10 but not when I open it from my program?

Thanks in advance
Shawn

RE: Blob not showing on Crystal report at runtime

Most likely the embedded version is different than the full Crystal 10 and doesn't provide blog support.

It does because I do the same thing in another program. In that program I read the image from a file to store into the db instead of creating one on the fly.

RE: Blob not showing on Crystal report at runtime

Is the file type stored in the blob the same in each case?

The blob being created on the fly is a BMP every time.

The ones that I read from a file have varying file types and all work just fine.
