I want to display file thumbnail metdata on an Access form. I found some code for extracting and displaying the data for VB6 at http://www.vbaccelerator.com/home/VB/Code/Libraries/Shell_Projects/Thumbnail_Extraction/article.asp
but when I port it into VBA I have problems transferring the picture data to a VBA control. The pcMemDC class from which the picture can be obtained has the property Itype IPicture but when I reference this property in VBA a compile error "Method or data member not found" appear even though the property name appears in a drop-down after I type the . after the class instance name.
A second problem is how to display the picture returned by pcMemDC - in VB6 this can be assigned to a PictureBox control using
Set PictureBox.Picture = c.Picture
Where c is an instance of pcMemDC
The VBA Image control has a picture property but the picture type may not be the same.
Any ideas on how to progress would be much appreciated.
