Hi,

I m learning & developing an application using Access2k. Do forgive me if my questions sounds stupid but i really run out of ways. I have an application that requires user to scan in product code, upon verify product existance with my tables. Image will appear base on the different products he/she choose.

I like to include a short clip if possible too. Whats the difference between Unbound Image & bound? how should I go about it? Appreciate if someone show me some pointers. Thanks

Bound = tied to a database field. Data or object is contained within or linked to a field in your underlying tables.

Unbound = Not tied a field by default. In the case of an image could be used to display a logo or other image which is basically static. A lot of developers use unbound controls and then manipulate the contents via code depending on the requirements of the application.

Your application interfaces with a barcode scanner? If so are you able to customize the barcode interface or at least reference values from it? Does the catalog (product table) have pictures in it or at least link to pictures?

  2. Docmd.OpenForm "frmProducts",,"[ProdCode]='" & varScanCode & "'"

It would be something like the above to open a form and display a specific record. It all depends on your app, the scanner interface, and other unknowns for us to be more specific.

You may need to check my syntax. It's the day after a "GREAT SUPER BOWL"
