Link an image on the web to appear on a form

P: n/a
We want our company logo to appear on the forms in our database. The
logo is on our homepage. Is there a way to link it? (rather than embed
it).

You can link to a file on your lan, but not to a URL. You can also embed
the image in a small form made especially for this purpose and then insert
that as a subform on all of your other forms. This way you are only
embedding the image once even though you are using it in lots of places.
This would significantly reduce the size bloat on your file compared to
embedding it every place you use it.

In the same folder as the application I place a copy of the image that
I want to appear on the form. I always name it "CompanyLogo.bmp".
On each form I create, I add an Image from the tool bar, and set the
default image to the Soap Bubbles.bmp image found in the Windows
folder. I name the Image object "ImageSpot", and set the Size Mode to
Zoom.

Then in the forms On Open event property I add the following code:
strCaption = Me.Caption
strCaption = strCaption & " - " & DLookup("[Title]",
"tblApplicationInfo") & ", Version " & DLookup("[Version]",
"tblApplicationInfo")
Me.Caption = strCaption
Me!ImageSpot.Picture = CurrentProject.Path & "\" & "CompanyLogo.bmp"

Note also that I modify the caption of each form to include the name of
the application and the version number (which is stored in the table
"tblApplicationInfo").
I hope you find this information useful.
