In a WEB application reporting on a field with an image in it in MS SQL Server ( not tested on any other DB ) using ODBC or OLE DB generates a "Failed to Render Report" error message if the field is empty.
Works in CR DEsigner and a Windows Desk top application.
Crystal Reports, Developer for Visual Studio SP 21 and SP 22
Reproducing the Issue
- Create a report based on a BLOB field in CR Designer.
- Add that report to a simple WEB app
- Run the app
- When rendering the page the message is thrown.
This issue has been escalated to R&D for a solution in CR for VS SP 23
