Having problems with dynamic graphic locations

I'm evaluating Crystal Reports right now and getting stuck on what seems to be a simple report task. I have followed the direction found in the help and online ( for making an OLE object dynamic so that an image can be dynamically called for each record in the recordset.

I've used both static and dynamic local network and URL paths. Nothing shows in preview or export except the initial image that I inserted which I understand is the default if the image location specified does not exist. I can go to the url or local location in a browser and the path is correct so not sure what is going on.

Thanks in advance for any help.

    I'm having the exact same problem, nothing shows up within the report. When I go to the exact same URL that I used in the report in a browser, the image loads fine.

    Is there something special that needs to be done in order to load an image from an URL (rather than from the local filesystem)?

      I've been using the JRC for the past 2 years now and STILL there has been no bug fix for this. I too have been waiting for a bug fix on the dynamic image location. It works when your report designer but when moved to the JRC environment, it uses the default image that was originally created.

      I am so surprise to why Crystal has to charge their customers for reporting bugs. I think thats awful! Someone needs to submit this as a bug. (I can't since I didn't purchase service plan)
