 Displaying pictures in reports

Hi all,

Can anyone tell me how I can display bitmaps in Visual Basic reports?

I have a database, with a field (named "ImagePath"), and for every record in
the database, I need to display a different picture on my report - the
pictures being files pointed to by the ImagePath field.

I have tried using something like:

   NewBitmap = rsFileList.Fields("ImagePath")

   rptMainReport.Sections("Command1_Detail").Controls("Image1").Picture =

Inserted into the MoveComplete method for the record set, set up in the

This worked for updating the form, but for the report I get the message:

Run time error '438':
Object doesn't support this property or method.

This indicates to me that the picture cannot be changed at run time. Am I
correct? If so, is there any other way of doing this?

Alternatively, I've also set the reports up in my Access database. Is there
any way that I can run the Access report from my Visual Basic application

Many thanks in advance
