Simple.  But I'm missing something.  Please help correct my code.  I have Ole1 object control on the form.  Here is my code so far;

sSQL1 = "SELECT * FROM Employees WHERE Employees.fkAlpha = " + "'" + Me.FkAlpha2 + "'"

   Set DB = OpenDatabase("c:\employees.mdb")
   Set rst = DB.OpenRecordset(sSQL1)
   rst.MoveLast
   rst.MoveFirst
   MsgBox rst!Name
   
The record is being selected properly.  rst!Name does display.
Thanks,
Russ

Please verify the rst.RecordCount. Is it > 0 ?

Yes it is.  I have the record.  I can display rst.RecordCount (1) with MsgBox; Text1,text; etc.  Please how do I display the Ole1 control.  I would like to display the Ole Object in MS Access, the field name is "Picture".

I think that you can add a Data Control to your Forms. Also add an OLE control to your form. Both are intrinsic control in your ToolBox Window. Now set the data control to you DB and set the Datasourse and DataField of your OLE Control.
