    Default Print Image file reference "IMAGE"

    It appears an old bug has resurfaced.

    When printing an image, stored as an image file reference, if there is no image it prints the word "Image".

    Thanks, John

    John,

    As it seems you have dealt with this in the past and there might have been a fix for it, I would not call this a "Bug" necessarily.

    Instead of placing the image field directly on the report, Why not create a calc field to replace the image file reference field with a simple if() statement.

    IF("myimage field""","myimagefield","")

    This will prevent the word "Image" from appearing if the field is blank.

    As a side comment, I do not recall there being a "bug fix" for this issue. After checking the release notes the only "fix" that came close was:

    Build 1246_1002
    Bug Fixes
    Image File Reference Fields. If you were navigating from record to record on a form, and if an
    Image File Reference Field specified an image filename that did not exist, Alpha Five did not
    clear the image from the previous record. This is now fixed.

    Thanks for the workaround. I mentioned it so that it could be added to a fix list when possible.
