    Estimate line items report and pictures


    Do you think  is possible to have a small picture next to my item discription in a report? Been trying different things but no luck. I uploaded a imatge in the item list then changed the action in the estimat grid to bring over that image to the estimate table so it could print on the estmate report.  No luck on that front.  

    Wondering if its possible todo this.

    I get the feeling  the only way i can get a image next to a line item is i have to up load that image from a estimate screen then I would be able to print this on my report.  I dont think Method has the ability to move images using actions to another table.  I could be wrong!  It happens some times.

    Hi John,

    You should be able to do this by adding a field with Field Type "Picture" to the Item table (where you will upload your item's picture), then linking that field into your EstimateLine table via the Item field. You should then be able to drag & drop the linked field on to your report in the Report Designer. So long as a picture is uploaded for your item, it should show on your report.

    Hope this helps.
