    Images in report

    I use Access to store information for creating a report that has a jpg. In the past I have copied an image from my Paint Shop Pro and pasted into a field with the record. This causes the db to expand at an incredible rate! What is the best way to create a link to a jpg that will then be inserted into the report when I create the report from the record?

    you should not store images in the database because if will cost you storage space. it is much more better if you only save the path of your file in the database. then in your form, you are to make an unbound object frame then by coding, you are going to link the path to your unbound object frame.

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
