    Unanswered: images

    i have created a field in a table called "Images" with a OLE object data type. Now getting the located image from a directory for a record is not the problem, the problem is that when i created a subquent form for that table, displaying every record and field, it doesn't display the image in the OLE object box. All it displays is the directory name, is there a way round this or perhaps being able to allow each record to have their own physical image? Help would be very appreciated.

    there must be some confusion here, i think you tried to supply the path to your OLE field.

    OLE objects are embedded objects; you put it into your field via double-clicking the object at runtime

    however, if you just wish to display a pic from a directory, you might just want to use an image object bound to you text field that holds your path

    Have you tried viewing the data in a form view that is not datasheet? It seems logical that table view/datasheet view would only display the path of the image- something has to control the display size of the image i.e. your frame.

    Try dbpix from www.ammara.com it this brilliant, no footprint and no objects as large as elephants better know as OLE. I have both an internal system and web site externally referencing over 12,000 images using this product and it has been a saving grace.
