I'm trying to make the blob field work... it seems to work only if you actually put the actual bitmap files into the OLE field in Access.

Not if it was converted to a long binary data that I think was converted from the Data control in VB6.

I'm just modifying an existing program so I'm not too familar with how exactly it works...

All I know is that the blob field works if I dragged the bitmap file into the OLE field in ACCESS.

I wanted to get rid of the OLE field in CR8 (previously ver 7) because it would bring up the "updating ActiveX objects" message box each time I load an OLE image.

Is there a workaround to this problem?
