extracting images from Access 2000
Posted on 2002-06-27
I have a database which is the back-end for a vendor-created product. It is a namebadge system in which there is a camera connected to get photos of employees. The images are stored as a blob format in the database. Is there a way I can extract the images from the database for use in other applications? When taking the photos, they are just automatically inserted into the database, and nowhere is there and option to save the photo elswhere or in another format. I'm not knowledgeable about how blobs work (i.e., is a .jpg file that's converted to this format, etc.). The table shows the blob field as a OLE Object datatype.
