OLE Linked, Unlinked, Image at Runtime

P: n/a
Thank you in advance for any and all assistance. I'm trying to make it where at
runtime my program will allow the introduction of an image.

I've tried bound, unbound and images. On the bound OLE Object, sometimes I get
the Insert menu, and other times I don't. I want to be able to at runtime link
a file image to a particular record. Is there an easy way to do this, and if
so, is there code to assist me in this task?

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.
