    Question Where to start?

    Greetings and Salutations,
    I am very new to the world of databases and I have a question about how to approach a project. This seems like a good place to ask a question. So...
    I'm attempting to create a database that can display a picture(s) allong with information about that picture. For example, a employee database with information about where they live, their department and their photo ID. I am attempting to do this with Microsoft Access, but I can't figure out how to add the pictures to the forms. Is Access the right program to use or are there better products for my application? I am open to any and all suggestions. Thanks in advance.

    Cheers,
    Benjamin Kemp

    Granted that I haven't checked this recently, but isn't that one of the demos that ships with MS-Access? Have you checked on your CD?

    Well, at the moment I'm setting up a test database on an old Pentium 1 laptop with Access 2000 installed. I'll have to see if I can find out where that CD is. Thanks for the tip!

    I've just checked the demo for Access 2k and unfortunately it does not seem to allow you to display the actual picture per each entry. I guess I'll keep looking around.
