why does the picture doesnt load, pls debug my code, what is stored in tblAdv_FileName field in my database is just a link to the picture (like c:/proj1/images/pic1.jpg). this code of mine is stored in the Form_Load() event.

Dim conn As New ADODB.Connection
Set conn = New ADODB.Connection
Dim rs As New ADODB.Recordset
Set rs = New ADODB.Recordset

conn.CursorLocation = adUseClient
conn.ConnectionString = "DRIVER={MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver};" _
& "DATABASE=BHMTC;" _
& "UID=root;" _
& "OPTION=" & 1 + 2 + 8 + 32 + 2048 + 16384

conn.Open

rs.Open "SELECT * FROM tblAdv", conn, adOpenStatic, adLockOptimistic

Picture1.Picture = LoadPicture(rs.Fields(tblAdv_FileName))

rs.Close
conn.Close
Set rs = Nothing
Set conn = Nothing

Offtopic, this

Dim conn As New ADODB.Connection
Set conn = New ADODB.Connection
Dim rs As New ADODB.Recordset
Set rs = New ADODB.Recordset

change to

Dim conn As ADODB.Connection
Dim rs As ADODB.Recordset

Set conn = New ADODB.Connection
Set rs = New ADODB.Recordset

Also, you should use Set when loading picture

Set Picture1.Picture = LoadPicture(rs.Fields(tblAdv_FileName).Value)

Before u execute the statement

Picture1.Picture = LoadPicture(rs.Fields(tblAdv_FileName))

make sure the File stored in the Field name "tblAdv_FileName" exists on the hard drive

U Need to check the whole path of the file or image u want to load..

if u r storing the whole path of the file in ur database then only it will display image..else not..

in ur othet question, i feel u r only storing the file name and not the filepath..

try to store the file name using commondialog1.FileName

there's an error, (item cannot be found in the collection corresponding to the requested name or ordinal) on the debug line you suggested, i added it before the set picture1.picture line

@anv
i already stored the filename & its path on my db, i just need to output it on the picture control
