Normally, Access will reflect the 'Class' ID of the data. For instance, if it was a bitmap, the field would reflect "bitmap.Image'. Another thought is, you can display the Ole document as a icon on the form. Just select Insert->Object, browse to the file to either link or embed. An option on the lower right of the screen allows you to 'Display as icon'.
