I have a photo appearing if the file is present in the app.path directory.  The name of the photo file corresponds with a student ID number in the Access database and is bmp file format.  Some photos that correspond to the student ID's are not present and for these non-present photos I want a label to appear reading No Photo Available.  How do I code for this?

I hope this is what you want


sFilePath = App.Path & "\" & sStudentID
If dir$(sFilePath) = "" then
    Label1.Visible = True
    Picture1.Visible = False
Else
    Label1.Visible = False
    Picture1.Visible = True
    Picture1.Picture = LoadPicture(sFilePath)
End If

You could also create a BMP file that says "No photo available" and have it load whenever required.
