Crystal Reports 2016/2020 and Oracle BLOB fields no longer display the image when view, exported or printed
- Crystal Reports 2016
- Crystal Reports 2020
- Crystal Reports for Visual Studio
Reproducing the Issue
Create a report connecting to Oracle and use a BLOB field with a supported image type, bmp, etc.
As of CR 2020 4.3.2 we have added TIFF support back into the product so the registry key below will not be required.
As a work around for now add this registry key:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\SAP BusinessObjects\Suite XI 4.0\Crystal Reports\FormatOptions]
And the usual warnign about manually modifying the regsitry, back it up first....
