From my experience it is not possible.   You can only do it from the SQL server database.  Access does not have that capability.  Otherwise, you would use the GetChunk method.

I recommend that you just have a link to the imageand go from there.

Since I have never try this before, just guessing...
This has nothing to do with Response.BinaryWrite method?

'get the data here....
set rs = con.execute("SELECT thumbnail FROM rec WHERE recID =...')

response.contenttype = "images/gif"
response.binarywrite rs("thumbnail")

the problem was that the ole field does not have just binary data....it contain an header description(i guess)

MasseyM was right there is almost no way to do this.  In order to do it you are going to have to process what is stored in the database and strip out all the OLE headers and other information.  Then use the binarywrite method.  Sorry I don't know how to do it, but that is what needs to be done for this to work.

It can be done allright, I am doing it all the time. It depends very much on how you put the image into Access. If you insert the image into Access using the normal OLE-procedure, Access will mess around with the byte code of the image (it converts it to bitmap). So, the only way is to store the exact binary code of the image in Access. For that you have to write some VBA code, or use another tool.

Once the image is fine in Access, you can display it with ASP easily:


<%
Response.ContentType = "image/GIF"


Set Conn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
Conn.ConnectionTimeout = 5
Conn.CommandTimeout = 5
Conn.Open "DSN=Images"

strSQL = "SELECT * FROM Table WHERE ID=" & Request.Querystring("ID")
Set RSImage = Conn.Execute(strSQL)

Response.Binarywrite RSImage("Image")
%>

I use SA-FileUp from softartisans (www.softartisans.com) to store images into a database. I have seen it being done also with plain VBA. For that you have to use
AppendChunk.

Below follows a bit of code.

        MyData.Edit
       
        'Open Document
        Open strFile For Binary As #1 ' Open file.
        FileLength = LOF(1)
        i = 0
        Do While i < FileLength ' Loop until end of file.
            i = i + 1
            MyChar = InputB(1, #1)   ' Get one byte.
            MyData![Image].AppendChunk MyChar
        Loop
        Close #1    ' Close file.
       
        MyData.Update

Access field must be OLE, so it can hold any binary information
