    Hi, I have been trying to do, but no matter what I do, it does not seem to find the images. Is there a trick to the sort of image that can be used? I have followed the instructions here and the other threads, which all say the same thing. I am not sure as to what I am doing wrong.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    I created a report as it is told above.
    I am able to see the image when I add the “Link or Image” dashboard object and if I give image text as “fmap:images/1.jpg”. But I do not want to drag and drop this to all the dashboards. So how can I make it in one report and drag and drop that report to every where. I might have to change the image every quarter of the year and have more than 30 reports. So if I modify the report it would be reflected everywhere.

  10. Worth mentioning I thought that fmap is an area in memory allocated to the Presentation Server. It is loaded when the Presentation Server is initialized, or started. It can be setup to load contents from various directories; the safest place for images, JavaScript files etc is to add the files to the OC4J Container.

    Incidently, if you add it to the BIServer, repack the analytics.war file and deploy the war file to OC4J this will add the files to the OC4J container and, therefore, fmap area also.

    Cheers, John
