I need to store the contents of a TImage to my MS Access table. I need one procedure for loading data and one for saving data. The only type Access seems to have for binary data is "OLE Object". I don't have the slightest clue on how to do this.

Please help!

yep,

access stores blobs with an ole-server information prefix.

if there is no need to access the content within the access-frontend, then you should be able to store your images simple with

tblobfield(dataset.fieldbyname('fieldname')).loadfromfile('filename');  //or loadfromstream

savetofile/savetostream for the other direction

if your images are from different graphicformat, you need also a typefield in your table
