    I have a report with an OLE bound frame.

    A bitmap has been pasted into the bound field.

    The bitmap displays and prints differently on different computers. In
    particular, the alignment is different. Both computers are using the same
    printer.

    What can I do to work out why the bitmap rendering is different on different
    computers?

    Do both computers use *exactly* the same version of the printer driver?

    Is the application used as the OLE Server to render the BMP's the same on
    both computers, for example MS Paint or MS Phot Editor?

    I'm not onsite. I've asked the user to look for the printer driver version,
    and that request may be passed on to the IT people. Also, is there any test
    that you can suggest that I might be able to script?

    How can I check this?

    The client is using SQL Server, and I have a copy of the database. Is there
    going to be information in the database about the OLE Server? How would I
    get that information? (Or file type information?)

    Looking at my own data, in table view the field displays the word "picture".
    Does that mean anything? Clients use copy and paste to insert their own
    object into the field.

    David I have no experience with inserting Images into SQL tables. I believe
    they support an OLE object data type. If so, then when you view the table
    directly you should see the class name of the object, for example:
    Generic Package or Picture
    PaintBrush
    MS Photo Editor etc.

    Check both tables and see what's there. It's either a different class of
    object for the two tables or it's the same class but a different version of
    the Application that is serving as the OLE object server.

    On the copy of his data I received, the field
    is just showing "OLE Object", which is the same
    as an empty field.

    One possibility is that I don't have the correct
    application installed.

    Another idea is that they pasted a Link in the
    field, instead of embedding an object. Does that
    make sense?

    In either case, I would have expected to see some
    kind of error message?

    There must be some way to get information out of
    the field if it has an object or link in it? (I
    had a look at your site but didn't identify a place
    I could start).
