    Default Pictures instead of URL in Report

    If someone could point me in the right direction to get pictures to appear on a report instead of a URL. I have watched several videos and read the documentation but I am still not doing something right. I have a list control pulling data from a SQL Server database. When I select a specific row of the list, I have a button to populate data to a report, but I am still getting the url.

    Does your report know this is an image control and not a text control?

    I'm not sure I know, other than the property is a SQLDataSource link to a picture.

    Try This:

    Go into the datasource definition.

    Click Advanced Options.

    Then Override Field Definitions

    Then go into the field definitions, find the field in question and override it to image.

    Then, when you go back into the report definition, the field should have options befitting an image. (You might have to delete it, then put it back in.)

    Thanks, that works! One of the definition options is "Image File Reference" and that was the solution.
