You cannot insert a picture control that is not bound to a non-repeating field in a repeating group in a Microsoft Office InfoPath 2007 form or in a Microsoft Office InfoPath 2003 form. When you try to bind a picture control to a repeating field in a repeating group, you receive the following error message:
A picture control whose picture is included in the form must be bound to a non-repeating field with a picture data type. If the field is part of a repeating group, then the picture control must be inside a repeating table or repeating section that is bound to that group.
Note An example of a repeating field in a repeating group is a repeating table.
This problem occurs when you try to bind a picture control to a field of type "simpleType" and not to a field of type "base64." You try to do this in the source database. A picture control in InfoPath only supports fields of type as follows:
To work around this problem, you can insert a picture as a static image in the repeating table. The picture that you want to add to the repeating table must be available as a file outside the data source. To insert a picture as a static image in the repeating table, follow these steps.
Note Because the picture is a static element, the picture is visible at all times. The picture is visible both before you run a query and after you run a query on the repeating group. The picture does not change based on the results of the query.
