Print photo field on report

I added the photo field to a report, but the photo does not display. I can't figure out what I am doing wrong in ACT 2010. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Re: Print photo field on report

Pictures don't show in preview, try actually printing it.

Re: Print photo field on report

You need to set the properties for the photo field in the report template. You are likely only seeing a protion of the photo.

Re: Print photo field on report

 

 

 Hi Roy,

 

 The properties that I have for the photo field are:

 

background transparent

border color black

style transparent

alignment center middle

visible true

can grow yes

shrink no

alignment general

anchor top

height 2.19

left 4.19

all margin options 0

top 0.31

top margin 0

width 2.69

name photo 1

 

 

I also noticed that the image at the top of the Company Comprehensive report that comes with ACT 2010, is not displayed in print preview.

Can you see the image in that report?

 

 

 Thank you

hi roy,

 

the picture alignment is center middle.

 

i also opened soe\me reports like the "Gross margin by contact", which has an image in the upper left corner. that image is not displayed when I preview or run the report.

 

thank you.

Re: Print photo field on report

Try Zoom for the picture alignment, it sizes the picture to the field but retains the aspect ratio.

 

It sounds like you may have printer or video driver problems.

Re: Print photo field on report

hi roy,

 

i tried the zoom option and that didn't work either.

i have tried everything you suggested on a windows xp and windows vista machine and neither of them will display the image on a report.

the reports that come with the software will not display or print the images that are on the reports either.

 

i do thank you for helping me to try to find a solution to this problem.

 

at this point, i give up.

 

thank you

Re: Print photo field on report

I am having this same problem in act 2011. I am using a computer that is only a few months old that has windows 7.

Is there anyone that can troubleshoot this problem?

Thank you

Re: Print photo field on report

THANK YOU!   I was going insane trying to figure out why my photos weren't working.  Preview does not show the photos....need to print them.  FYI - printing to PDF works too.
