You have to use the following function to save the picture from the DB to a file, and show the file in a picture box.

dim record as RecordSet
dim sSQL   as String

sSQL = "Select pl_planepic from Plane"
set record = DB.OpenRecordset(sSQL, dbOpenDynaset)

.
call GetFileFromDB(record("pl_planepic"), "c:\temp\pict.bmp")



Sub GetFileFromDB(BinaryField As Field, szFileName As String)
    ' *** Will retrieve an entire Binary field and write it to disk ***
   
    Dim NumBlocks    As Long
    Dim TotalSize    As Long
    Dim RemBlocks    As Integer
    Dim CurSize      As Integer
    Dim nBlockSize   As Long
    Dim nI           As Integer
    Dim nFile        As Integer
    Dim CurChunk     As String
   
    nBlockSize = 32000    ' Set size of chunk.
   
    ' *** Get field size.
    TotalSize = BinaryField.FieldSize()
    NumBlocks = TotalSize \ nBlockSize   ' Set number of chunks.
   
    ' *** Set number of remaining bytes.
    RemBlocks = TotalSize Mod nBlockSize
   
    ' *** Set starting size of chunk.
    CurSize = nBlockSize
    nFile = FreeFile ' Get free file number.
   
    Open szFileName For Binary As #nFile  ' Open the file.
    For nI = 0 To NumBlocks
       If nI = NumBlocks Then CurSize = RemBlocks
       CurChunk = BinaryField.GetChunk(nI * nBlockSize, CurSize)
       Put #nFile, , CurChunk   ' Write chunk to file.
    Next
    Close nFile

End Sub
