    thanks for your prompt reply, but the problem is that with OData web services we cannot publish a codeunit.

    is it possible for you to load the picture with an extra call based on a soap web service ?

    Create a text variable, and add it to the page. Then fill the variable with Base64 in OnAftergetrecord.

    add a text field to table item. fill it with the base64 encoded image value. this field you can access via odata. when calling the odata service read the new text field, convert the text value back to an image.

    The problem with this is that a Text field can only store 250 chars so won't be large enough to store a base64 encoded image.
