Displaying an image in an ms access report based upon data in a linked MS SQL column (type image)
Posted on 2006-11-08
I have probably missed something really obvious but having spent the last couple of hours trying I could do with some help!
Basically I have a MS Access 2000 database which has a linked table to a MS SQL Server table containing a field of data type image which I want to display on a report in MS Access.
The images within the MS SQL Server table are from a third party system and I do not have access to the original image files.
When I open the linked MS Access table it shows the image data as OLE object.
I have tried using an image object on my report and setting the picturedata property but get an error ("The bitmap you specified is not a device-independent bitmap (.dib) format.
I have also tried using an OLE object but could not see how to set it's properties to use the data contained within the table.
Please can anyone help....(I am meant to be producing a report ASAP with the images in!)
