    Unanswered: full path

    I use a piece of code that displays pictures from picture paths. Is it absolutely necessary to use full path to show these pictures in Access?

    The problem with the full path is that if someone moves the database to a different drive or folder, the paths aren't valid anymore.

    hmmm

    if the folder is moved the fullpath isnt valid allso

    by the way it isnt reccomanded to use fullpath names
    instead use \\win\program files\ect

    what you have as G:\ other users have it as H:\

    you can use : if exist
    or : trap the error if it ocures when the pathname dosnt exist
