rptClientDoc = new ReportClientDocumentClass();
CrystalDecisions.ReportAppServer.ReportDefModel.PictureObject boPictureObject;
CrystalDecisions.ReportAppServer.ReportDefModel.Section boSection;
rptClientDoc = rpt.ReportClientDocument;
//Determine which section to add the picture field to - in this case the report header section
boSection = rptClientDoc.ReportDefController.ReportDefinition.ReportHeaderArea.Sections[0];
//Add the image to the report
boPictureObject = rptClientDoc.ReportDefController.ReportObjectController.ImportPicture(MyfilePath, boSection, 1, 1);
