Pictures from path and scale

Pictures from path and scale

Pictures from path and scale

I have a report that reads the filename of jpg images from a table. The graphic location formula then uses that field to point to an image. All images from a case are then displayed on the report, two images per page. The report worked fine for years showing all the pictures from whatever case we wanted. We upgraded some software and I needed to modify the report to look at a new path location. When I did so, the pictures no longer scale down to fit on the page, but instead a single image prints across several pages. The only thing I changed was the path the report looks in. It may also be that I saved it with a newer version of Crystal. It may have been originally created with Crystal XI and resaved with Crystal 2008. Does anyone have any idea how I can get the images to scale down as they did before?

RE: Pictures from path and scale

It's been years since I created this report, So I deleted the image and re-inserted and set the location formula up again. I got the same result and then realized the "Lock Position and Size" checkbox was not checked and the "can grow" checkbox was checked. I checked the first and unchecked the later. Problem solved. I'm guessing the same was true with the graphic I deleted, but who knows. If so, I'm not sure why editing the location formula would have changed anything. Either way, it's fixed now.
