The field in recorset contains the object not the path to the bit
map image. Take the NorthWind Database and look in Employees, the field Photo does not contain Path. What is the short and efficient way of displaying the image at runtime.

Try this solution and it should solve your problem.

Create a OLE control(you have to choose from toolbox) and choose Bitmap image and link the Photo field in the Employee table of Northwind database(Use datacontrol for example)

Now run this one
