Image (system.byte[]) not showing in Crystal Report - Visual Studio

Hi there ! I am having a problem!

My image is stored in an SQL database ( SQL 2008 ) as an image field ! I retrieve it from the database using an OLEDB connection to show it in my report (Blob object) but it is empty and doesn't show anything !

The image is in a datatable in (system.byte[]) format and it shows well in a picture box

I am using Visual studio 2010 and C# (.net 4.0 )

Hi there once again! I got it fixed!

Thought I would share how so others may benefit!   Actually the function I had which was converting the image into binary to store in database was converting it using .Gif format ! I got to know that crystal reports didn't support .gif but I didn't know I was converting it into .gif !

So after going through my code I changed it to .Jpeg and it works like a charm now! Thank you!
