  1.  sql = "SELECT  RecordNum, DelDate, FName, Lname, Phone, Email, DevMake, DevModel, Carrier, DevColor, UsserPassword, MobileId, Repaired, RepComments, ServiceType, FindUs, DateDone, AuthorizeRepair, BackUpInfo, TecTrained, NotResponsible, VoidWarranty, FeesPaid, DiagnosticFee, Pricequote, Deposit, Total, signature  FROM RepairData ORDER BY Lname"
  2.         Dim imgMemoryStream As MemoryStream = New MemoryStream()
  3.         da = New OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter(sql, con)
  4.         da.Fill(ds, "RepairData")
  6.         Dim c As Integer = ds.Tables("RepairData").Rows.Count
  7.         If c > 0 Then
  8.             Dim n As Integer
  9.             For n = 1 To c
  10.                 If ds.Tables("RepairData").Rows(n - 1)("signature") IsNot DBNull.Value Then
  11.                     Debug.WriteLine(ds.Tables("RepairData").Rows(n - 1)("signature"))
  12.                     Dim imageBytes() As Byte = _
  13.                         DirectCast(ds.Tables("RepairData").Rows(n - 1)("signature"), Byte())
  14.                     Dim myStream As New MemoryStream(imageBytes)
  15.                     ds.Tables("RepairData").Rows(n - 1)("signature") = Image.FromStream(myStream) 'error myStream here
  17.                 End If
  18.             Next
  19.         End If
Using the above code. I have found it on the internet in several places but I get an invalid parameter error for myStream variable in the Image.FromStream (myStream) code.

"Image" is not declared in the piece of code you have copied here. that is making it hard to guess which parameters are missing.

Also provides a '[CODE/]' button for copying/pasting pieces of code in a message...

What are you trying to do on these lines?
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1.  Dim myStream As New MemoryStream(imageBytes)
  2.                     ds.Tables("RepairData").Rows(n - 1)("signature") = Image.FromStream(myStream) 'error myStream here
Are you attempting to set the "signature" column for the row in the data table to a Stream?????


Shouldn't you be creating a new image and then applying it where needed?

For example:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. If ds.Tables("RepairData").Rows(n - 1)("signature") IsNot DBNull.Value Then
  2.   Debug.WriteLine(ds.Tables("RepairData").Rows(n - 1)("signature"))
  3.   Dim imageBytes() As Byte = DirectCast(ds.Tables("RepairData").Rows(n - 1)("signature"), Byte())
  5.   Using ms As New IO.MemoryStream(imageBytes)
  6.     Dim imageFromStream As Drawing.Image = Drawing.Image.FromStream(ms)
  7.     'Use the image appropriately  
  8.   End Using
  9. End If
