Dear,

I am running Windows XP Pro and use Access 2002 to design a customer database.

In the form, the access cannot display any jpg image but bmp is ok. Please help!

And, how to chagne the image in the form? That's like the button "Select" which can find the the file in the computer.

Thank you!

Can't answer you question, but I've experienced this before on numerous projects.  For some reason, bitmaps work fine in Access, but jpg's and gif's do not.

Recommend you get a decent graphics program (Fireworks, Paint Shop Pro), or in lieu of that mspaint, and convert your images to .bmp's before using them in Access.

Hope this helps.

Sounds like the Office shared filters aren't installed. It's probably an Office re-install job.

Thank you very much!
"Full" install Office XP. Then, the Access can define the jpg, gif... with MS Photo Editor.
