import picture to Access2003

P: n/a
Hi to all,

I havea big DB with information and pictures of our employees and this
DB is used by a lot of people in our company.
The data format is Access2000.
In the past the import of pictures without problem, I clicked in a
form -> import object -> create new -> MS Photo editor -> etc.
On my desktop I have now installed Office2003 and here is not more
the MS Photo Editor but the MS Office Picture Manager and he is not
listed in the Create object form and if I import the picture directly
from the *.jpg file in the form is visible only a icon.

Have somebody an idea how to solve thsi problem?

Best regards from Prague

You need to get hold of your Office Xp or even 2K disks so that you can
install MS Photo Editor off of one of these previous editions of MS
Office.
Alternatively, you can contact MS PSS and see if you can get them to
send you a CD.

You may want to look at the Northwind example database. There is an
Employee form that has pictures like I think you're wanting.

Good luck,

jlm

P.S. Will be traveling to your city in April.

Perhaps it is time to reconsider whether using OLE Objects and OLE Frames is
the appropriate method to achieve your purpose. As you have discovered, when
you do so, you are captive to the limitations and restrictions of whatever
imaging software is registered for the file type of the image.

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, and
other problems, 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.
