Update OLE Object to nothing

Posted on 2009-04-14

I have a table that has an ole object field.  This field stores a picture that can be imported from the VB 2008 front end and also deleted from the front end.  
The Backend is a MS Access db.
I have everything working except the correct sql syntax to set the ole object field in the Access database to nothing when a user deletes the picture.
What is the correct syntax?  Please provide an example and not a link.  My IE crashes everytime I click on a link.  
Thanks
Private Function RemovePicture() As Integer
        Dim oC As New OleDbCommand
        Dim i As Integer
 
        Try
            oC = oleCnn.CreateCommand
###### The update syntax below is what I need help on.
            oC.CommandText = "Update Cars Set CarPic = nothing where carid = " & miCarID & ""
            oC.Connection.Open()
            i = oC.ExecuteNonQuery()
 
        Catch ex As Exception
            MessageBox.Show(ex.Message.ToString)
 
        Finally
            oC.Connection.Close()
            oC.Dispose()
        End Try
        If i > 0 Then
            Return True
        Else
            Return False
        End If
    End Function
