Fill Color

Do not use an equal sign (=) or quotation marks ("") when typing the color name.

Select the image source

Indicate where the image is stored so that when the report is rendered, the report processor will know where to get the image from.

  • External   Choose this option when you want the image to continue to exist as a file on a report server or Web server.

If you are embedding the image, choose the picture that you want to add to the report from the drop-down list. Click the Import button to add the image to the drop-down list.

For example, http://<SharePointservername>/<site>/Documents/images/image1.jpg.
