Image Datatye

I am working on Crystal Reports 2013 SP 9 querying SQL server 2012 database.

I have a table field defined as "image" datatype that I am trying to show on my report. When the command brings the field to the report, the datatype lists as "Picture" for this column.

When I drop the field on the details section, I do not see the image. It's blank. Clearly, I am missing something. Can someone please help with the issue.

Thanks

Sunil

    Hi Sunil,

    Does the field contain 'textual' info or an actual image?

    Textual info stored as an image (blob) are shown blank in Crystal Reports.
