acCmdInsertObject - bmp files display picture, why don't jpg and gif?

I have embedded a file using acCmdInsertObject but all I see in the control is the name of the file if it is a jpg or gif. If it is a bmp or ppt(ie from the list of applications shown in the dialog box) it shows the picture.

How do I get jpg and gif to display as pictures?

I am using Access 2000, Windows XP home.

tony

Thanks but it didn't work.

Your tip showed me a form that imports jpg and gifs into an image control but this picture does not get saved in a table(ie when you close the form the picture goes away. next time you open the form you have to import the pic again.
I have used Excel.Application.GetOpenFileName to browse to a file, so that part is fine.
My problem now is to get the jpg to display as a picture in the Bound OLEFrame. All I see is the name of the file. If I double click it it opens the fax viewer.

It seems the OLEFrame will not display the picture if it is a jpg or gif. I think your tip has some code to convert but it is complicated. Is there not an easier way?
