Adding/Combining BMP images in a Report?


I have a PDA database program that allows me to use a bitmap image as a
background for a drawing field. Users can draw digital ink on top of
the bitmap and save the new ink as an OLE object in the PDA database.
The bitmap is not saved as part of the record, just the new ink. I'm
looking for a way to print a report from the database that would
recombine the bitmap and the ink. One way might be to import the PDA
database into a desktop version of Access and print it as an Access
Report. I suppose the way to do it would be to somehow include a copy
of the bitmap in the report, then superimpose the OLE object containing
the new ink. Does anyone know if this is possible? Tips on doing it?
I don't know much about Reports in Access - haven't had much of a need
in the past. I'll probably be turning this over to a co-worker who
knows much more about reports than I, but isn't aware of a way to do
this.

Thanks,
-Scott

Is there any function for combining an absolute and a relative URL to result in an absolute URL? Like if I have http://www.domain.com and "../images/1.jpeg" it will evaluate to http://www.domain.com/images/1.jpeg. I know WinInet for windows has a function that does this called InternetCombineUrl, I just need the same function in PHP

All, Is there a simple way to manipulate the details section of a Crystal Report at runtime on a per-record basis? The reason I want to do this is that my database table contains an image url field, but in my report I have to show the image rather than its location. I have looked for events that would be thrown when CR generates the details section for each record but I couldn't find any and I am starting to fear

I'm working on a report that shows a lot of data, so I've set it up so it is 2-pages wide in landscape view for each record. ie: The report is 22" wide (less margins). On the left page there are three images, and there are two images on the right page. The images are stored in a directory, and only path\filename info is stored in the database. For testing purposes, there are only four records, so there isn't a memory issue. I'm...

Hi, I'm trying to add images to a report, pointing to a field in a query containing the file path (a combination between a string value and an existing field). There's nothing wrong with the path, but for some reason I get a message saying it can't find the field "IMAGE_PATH". I'm using the following code, which should work: Me!ImageFrame.Picture = Me.IMAGE_PATH.Value

Hi, I can convert my report to Adobe PDF, but the photos are very poor. They were taken as RAW images and I've tried saving them at different resolutions as JPEGs, but it doesn't seem to make much difference in the PDF output. I have about 500 images in the 200ish page report (unless I split it into several smaller ones). Each photo should be about 6-8cm on the longest side. Any recommendations on what res to use would be most...

I'm creating a report that will present information split into several sections with each section dealing with a particular aspect of data. No problem there. However, one of the sections will contain photographs which I need to snake across and down the page. That's fine if the report just contained photos because I can create the column of an appropriate width and let the report get on with it. But, because those sections of the report...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
