What are the right steps to views images from database to crystal report?


Hi everyone,

I'm currently using Crystal Reports 2013 SP 1, Ver

I have an image stored in MSSQL 2014 as a varbinary type.

In the design & preview tab of the crystal report, i am able to drag and drop the db field and it shows the image accordingly. I have other fields in the report as well like name, gender, id, etc and it all displays just fine in the crystal report application.

However, when i try to view it from my web application using the crystal report viewer, all these fields except the image is displayed.

I have tried to change my connection type to ODBC to OLE DB, the outcome is still the same.

I have also tried changing the image type to png, tiff, bmp (if it makes any difference) before saving it into my database. Outcome still the same.

Any feedback is greatly appreciated, sorry if this question has been posted before.
