Pictures in a database

P: n/a

Quick question: What is the best way to include pictures in a database.
I am making one that allows folks to sort through a bunch of jpg's. The
only way I can figure out is to insert an OLE object, but doing the data
entry is a pain as it requires you to click on the main menu item
"Insert" then on "Object" and then follow another 6 prompts.

I'm a newbie, so any help would be fantastic.

Thanks in advance!!
Jenni

Hi Jenni,

Store the path to your pictures in a text field in a table. Use an image
control (found in the toolbox) to display your pictures. Set the Picture
property of the image control to the path.
