Reporting with images/ access-permission issue


Hi All,

We created a Crystal Report that contains images for each row. And the report goes to shared folder location to find the related images for each row.

We are trying to set the permissions on this file location and for that we created a user group contains people who is supposed to run this report. However we noticed that when we run the report, report is trying to access to this file location with some other ID (probably a background user) not with the users ID.

Even though my ID is in the security group when I run the report I don't see the images. But I am able to see the images if I preview it directly in the file location.

Now we need to add this background user to the security group to resolve the issue. Does anyone know what this user ID could be?

I appreciate any help.
