I have a form with an unbound control -- how can an user copy and
paste a .bmp image into this control? I tried to copy and paste an
image by double clicking inside this control but nothing happened...
thank you very much

You don't say what kind of control. Except for briefly examining the image
(which you could do from wherever you want to copy it), there would not be
any point in putting that image into an _unbound_ control. Do you want to
store it in your database? If not, please clarify here.

Perhaps the following will be of some help.

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.
