Display Images Without Storing in the Database!

 S  M  L  XL  FS  |  Slo  Reg  Fast  2x  |  Bookmark Join Now

In this video, I'll show you how to display images in your Microsoft Access forms and reports without storing them in your database. Images (or any external files for that matter) can really bloat your database, making it big and slow. Storing the files in an external folder and tracking the location of that file is a much more efficient way to handle images with Microsoft Access.

Haruki from Kawasaki, Japan (a Platinum Member) asks: I would like to be able to print out employee name badges with their name, the company logo, and their picture. What's the best way to do this in Microsoft Access?


Members will see how to use a little VBA code to make a button that we can click on and browse for the filename. This way you don't have to type in or copy/paste the path and file for the picture. Just click, select, done.
