    The error only appear if I try to print, export to word and pfd (work only with excel).
    I dont get the error when I remove the image from the column in the subreport.

    Any ideia why this happens?

  • Hi........NunoCruz

                 If you want to display image from database to your rdlc file then you have to use image control for that purticular field.

                 For that just put rectangle in table column in which you want to display image and then in rectangle put image control in it

                and then drag and drop image field in to it.

                Now you and render pdf or excel file from reporviewer by programmatically also.

                Use the following code to generate file from reportviewer.

     //Page settings for PDF File.
            string mimeType;
            string encoding;
            string extension;
            string deviceInfo =
           "<DeviceInfo>" +
           " <OutputFormat>PDF</OutputFormat>" +
           " <PageWidth>8.5in</PageWidth>" +
           " <PageHeight>10.5in</PageHeight>" +
           " <MarginTop>0.05in</MarginTop>" +
           " <MarginLeft>0.05in</MarginLeft>" +
           " <MarginRight>0.05in</MarginRight>" +
           " <MarginBottom>0.05in</MarginBottom>" +
            string[] streamids;
            Microsoft.Reporting.WinForms.Warning[] warnings;
            //Gives byte[] of Generated pdf file.
            byte[] bytes = reportViewer2.LocalReport.Render("PDF", deviceInfo, out mimeType, out encoding, out extension, out streamids, out warnings);
            FileStream fs = new FileStream("D:\abc.pdf",FileMode.Create,FileAccess.Write)
    If the above solution solve your problem then mark it as answer
