How to print non-ole-images

P: n/a
I have a textfield in my database which stores the location of an
image. Each time a record is selected, the right image is loaded based
on the path stord in the textfield.
Now I want to print a report with these pictures. Is this possible??

Yes. The code in the examples that is in OnCurrent for a Form would be in
the OnPrint event of the Report's Detail Section.

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
some 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.
