How to display image without storing it in table
Posted on 1998-09-04
The Deluxe CD player that comes with Plus98 for Win98 saves CD info as an Access database. I've created a database with links to this, and have also scanned the CD covers. My form then shows the relevent cover and CD info.
My problem is that no matter what I try, the image is embedded in the table which is now around 100MB in size even though the images total around 3.5MB. I've searched Microsoft's Knowledgebase and have found:

However this solution relies on you manually typing the graphic filename and path into the table. Is there a way that you can call up an open file style dialog box so that this can populate the table with the file info? If someone has an answer and says "Yes, just do it in VB" could they provide the step by step guide!
