Hi

In Access 2007 there is a special attachment field type.

Is it possible to replicate this field in a SQL 2005 database?

SQL Server has restricted support for this functionality and you'll need some front-end programming to implement it similar way. SQL Server allows to store binary data in varbinary and image columns but Access allows more attachements in one field and it is not easily portable to SQL Server.

I don't know how to do it from access but I saw you the way that this is possible in SQL Server from via C# and if you directly want to do it in SQL Server than there is one post of "Lam" who has upload image to SQL Server and got it back from SQL Server itself, you might use that with ACCESS. I don't know how to do it especially from ACCESS.
