Adding Image Fields

A report dataset can include a field that contains an image, such as a company logo or a picture of an item. To add an image from the report dataset, you insert a Picture content control.

Images align in the top-left corner of the content control and resize automatically in proportion to fit the boundary of the content control.

You can only add images that have a format (such as .bmp, .jpeg, and .png file types), which that is supported by Word. If you add an image that has a format that is not supported by Word, you will get an error when you run the report from the Microsoft Dynamics NAV client.

To add an image

  1. Place your pointer in the document where you want to add the control.
  2. In the XML Mapping pane, right-click the control that you want to add, choose Insert Content Control, and then choose Picture.
  3. To increase or decrease the image size, drag a sizing handle away from or towards the center of the content control.
