Visual Studio Report Designer: Using External Image

Add a table > Link table to a datasource
> Put an image in a cell.
> Image > Properties >
    > “Select the Image Source” to “External”
    > “Use this image” > set to a data source field
> Your Form > Report Viewer > Local Report >Enable External Images > “True”

Example of file names passed:


but beware of “Percent-encoding” special characters, which include # and others

so ABC#123.jpg will become ABC%23123.jpg
