    Question Unanswered: I want to put a picture in my data..

    and I can't work out how

    I want to be able to display an icon on my form with data. I'm trying to produce a priority system whereby i've got either "High", "Medium" & "Low" with a traffic light system to make it visible.

    Ideally I would like there to just be a red / green / amber icon in there and be able to sort via them but alternatively, I've found this on the m$ website:

    http://www.microsoft.com/accessdev/a...s/ODE3109I.GIF

    That would also be as good. Now that's using an activex imagelist to populate that.

    Anyone got any ideas how I could either:

    a) display just the icon or
    b) the icon and text like the above

    found this example if you need something visual

    thanks in advance!

    You can store images in a table using the data type OLE Object using tbl design view, in tbl view u can then 'insert' objects by right clicking on the field and selecting it from the menu, u may be able to quiery the file name etc :P Blitz
