Problem with images

P: n/a
I suddenly have problems when i want to insert pictures (bmp) in my access
database.
When i insert the 'object', i only see the icon with pic.bmp under it. In
the properties menu
the 'show icon' option is not on so that's not the problem.

My old databases still show the pictures in their normal shape.

Any ideas?

Thanks

If you are using OLE Frames, you are subjecting yourself to whatever
capabilities are provided by the image software registered for the
particular type of image file on the user's machine.

The sample imaging databases at http://accdevel.tripod.com illustrate three
approaches to handling images in Access, and the download includes an
article discussing considerations in choosing an approach. Two of the
approaches do not use OLE Objects and, thus, avoid the database bloat
associated with images in OLE Objects.

If you are printing the images in reports, to avoid memory leakage, you
should also see MVP Stephen Lebans' http://www.lebans.com/printfailures.htm.
PrintFailure.zip is an Access97 MDB containing a report that fails during
the Access formatting process prior to being spooled to the Printer Driver.
This MDB also contains code showing how to convert the contents of the Image
control to a Bitmap file prior to printing. This helps alleviate the "Out of
Memory" error that can popup when printing image intensive reports.
