Access Database Images to VB Form

Posted on 2002-03-30

Hello,

I am trying to make a database use in a vbForm.  Everything seems to be fine, as in the text fields are all loading.  However, I also have images in it, but they dont come on the form.  It says invalid picture.  if i put that picture directly into it, it works.  Not when the database loads it.  I have the image stored in the database as an OLE object.  Is there a special conversion needed?

I am using a bmp file.  I tried jpg as well.
Thanks!
