Store Images Relative to DB to Prevent Broken Links


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

In this Microsoft Access tutorial, you will learn how to store image file paths relative to the current database folder, ensuring your database reflects the new folder locations after a system upgrade or change.

Wesley from Plantation, Florida (a Gold Member) asks: I'm following the example that you showed in your "Images" video on how to store the full path and filename of an image in the table, instead of storing the picture itself as an OLE object or an attachment, and it works great. I love it. However, my company just upgraded computers, and the folder the database is in has moved. Now, I've got all these image locations that are pointing to the wrong place. How can I fix this?

Members

Members will learn how to take their existing full path file names and bulk upgrade them to a relative path using an update query.

Silver Members and up get access to view Extended Cut videos, when available. Gold Members can download the database template from class plus get access to the Code Vault.
