baanjim is on a distinguished road
Baan: BaanERP - DB: oracle - OS: win2000(clt)-unix(srv)
Image on report designer
Baan: Infor ERP 10.7
C/S: None/Unknown

We try to put an image (jpg) on a report.
This image is stored on $BSE/tmp
In report extension we set a calculated filed (string) with path to jpg file.
In the documentation:
Image Path
Specify a report input field that contains the path to the image file on the LN server.
You can create a report extension to add the report input field and set its value to the desired path ofthe image. Optionally, the report extension can also retrieve the image from an external source, suchas IDM.
This option is available only if a report input field of the single-byte string type, with a length of at least60 characters, is available.
When an image is specified, but its file cannot be found on the LN server, an error is reported whenprinting.

How does RD 'understand' that this string field is an image?
Did we forget a stage in the design?
Thank you for help us

From the Special Items menu you must drag an Image to the canvas. In the Image properties you can specify the report input field that contains the path to the image.
