    Unanswered: Ole object properties

    Hi
    I want to insert objects (BMP file format) to my database, but i want to know if the would slow down my database,,
    And if so i want to know how to link the objects instead of insert them in it.
    Or maybe someone has a better idea.

    Many thanks.

    it shouldn't slow the DB down
    however the jury is out as to whether storing blob data (such as images) inside the dv or store a pointer to the db.
    the arguments are well explored elsewhere, do a google for details.

    Personally I prefer to store images outside the db, store a pointer (the URL of the image) in the db and handle the security / file handling issues using network permissions.
    I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton
