Hello Guys! Please help me out!!!
Curently finishing a small project, when my boss asked that the report should include the person Photo...
CR won't display photo unless it is stored directly into DataBase.
I read some where it is easuer to use Parameter to save both text and image.
Below is my code that is not helping me. It save text no problem but no image.

I no longer have a database installed so I can't try anything with parameters, but a few years back I posted a code snippet that inserts a picture (binary file) into a database without parameters. Perhaps that will help.

Guys
I appreciated if someone wold have a look at the code above and maybe point me to where I am failing, and perhaps give me some suggestion on what or how should it be.
