    Unanswered: how to use Images stored in Tables (OLE or attachment) used in htmlbody of emails

    Hi

    I've spent days searching for a solution on this. Round and round i went.

    I have a logo stored in a table "AttachmentsTable"
    Fields are
    Description as TExt
    FileAttach as Attachment
    FileOLE as OLE

    What I am trying to do is read a logo.jpg that is stored in the table either as attachment or OLE and then embed into the HTMLBody of the Email.

    I cant see why being able to read the data to a variable and then using the variable as an .attachment can be so hard.

    I appreciate your assistance. - anyone. .....

    Regards

    Rob.

    store it as a URL, and insert the image into the HTML email using <IMG></IMG> tags
    I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton

    Problem is some of the Logo's are not externally controlled by us... hence we want to have them In a table.

    Multiple machines will be running this app. so control is limited.

    what is the point of being able to store an image or an attachment if you cannot later retrieve it?
