    Hi Ahmed,

    To remove the OLE header from an Access image

    1. Add an image from an Access data source as described in the previous procedure.

    2. In the Image Properties dialog box, click the expression (fx) button.

    3. In the Expression dialog box, copy the following expression, with no line breaks, into the expression pane:


    The expression uses Mid to exclude the header information, which resides in the first 105 characters of the file, and then uses Convert to make the rest of the image base64 encoded. The expression assumes that the image originates in an EN-US database. If you are using a different collation, the OLE header might be longer or shorter than 105 characters.

    4. Click OK twice.
        An image placeholder appears on the report design surface.
