I have used a Bound Object Frame Control to view images on
a frame/store it in the database.
Is it with VBA-code possible to get the full path of the
image that is viewed in the above control. If...then how??
If not...can you recomend an ActiveX that has the power...?

It's hard to say without more information.  It sounds like your image data is stored inside the database.  If that is the case, there is no path to the images, it's in your Access table.  If the image is ALSO stored somewhere else in a file, I would add a field to the table that contains the full path to the image.  You would then check that field on the active record to determine the path to the image file.  You will want to add functionality to your program to set and update the path information.
