How to Insert image in Table Field of MS Access 2003

P: 5
Hi Everybody!
I have a database in Microsoft Access 2003 and I want to insert image in my Table Field. How can I don it??. I use OLE type but when i insert image to that field
only the word "Package" appears. I want to insert image in that field and load it
using ADODC in my Visual Basic form. I have already tried but an error occured in loading Image field of my Access Database. Can anyone solve my problem??
Hope the best answer for you.
Regards,

Storing images in tables in pre-2007 Access is a very poor idea! Take a look at Dev Ashish's article on the subject. It gives some better ideas for handling this task:

A very efficient Method of storing Images (Byte for Byte) in an Access Table is by storing them as BLOBs (Binary Large Objects).
