Crystal Reports - Using OLE Objects in a Subreport

184 Views

I need a Crystal Reports subreport of mine to show a (.PDF File, MS Word File, or a MS Excel File) as a static OLE object within my Crystal Report.

I am using a LIMS database that will be sending this subreport a different file each and every time the report is executed / run.

I tried using the Graphic Location formula pointer to have the placeholder image replaced by what ever file is sent each time the report is executed.

I also tried using the Hyperlink formula box with the File option selected to have the placeholder image replaced by what ever file is sent each time the report is executed.

My LIMS database stores all the files in a directory on a server within my company and all my end users have access to this directory. It is a shared directory.

All users have reading privileges to the network directory as well.

Any help would be great!

Thank You.
