DB linking pictures

I would like to create a program that reads records from an Access DB. When I type in a record (ie B&D Drill), I would like a picture of that record to pop-up in a picutre box. For example. I have my program running, I type in B&D Drill and then I hit enter and a picture of the record should populate the picture box. The picture files are kept in a separate folder. The name of the picture are the same name of the record (ie record name is B&D Drill and picture file is called B&D Drill.jpg).

Thanks

'put this kind of code in the necessary event

dim strPath as string
dim strImagePath as string


strPath = yourPath example: "\\SERVER1\"
strImagePath = yourPath & txtImage.text & ".jpg"
Me.image.Picture = strImagePath

If you need to have it pop up you could set the visible property to true when you open it or use another little form and load the form.

if you are using a picture box do:

picture1.picture = loadpicture ("<path to image>")

Thanks for the input Richie_Simonetti,
My first thought was that both were the same answer, but I can see now that they cover two different scenarios. Recommended disposition:
