Access to store images from the web which lets you paste them into Word

P: n/a
I'm very interested to hear if anyone has created an access database
that enables a user to cut and paste an image from a web page into a
database.

The database then stores the image and then allows the user to cut and
paste the image into either a Word document or an email.

I have made a good start and it works but the images are huge even
though from the web they are quite small I'm using OLE.

Has anyone made this work well?

Any advice?

Try storing each image as a file. Then use Word's Insert - Picture - From
File. The image will be the same size as the image on the web page.
