I have an Access Form that has an Unbound Object Frame control in it.  THe class is "Paint.Picture".  I wish to place have the control display a bitmap file I have on my hard drive, and I can not get it to do so.  I've manually set the "Source Doc" parameter to the file that I want the control to display, but it remains blank.  I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.  Your help is appreciated.
Thanks, ~Peter Ferber

do you really need an Unbound Object Frame? or can you just use the ordinary image frame? Think about it.

If you really need the Unbound one, them make sure you select "Create from file" in the left radio button of the wizard and them select the object type as "Bitmap Image" and browse it.

I agree with fabriciofonseca...

(your system sounds a bit complicated)

You can also simply "Link" to an image

Sample attached.

Way cool program, thanks.  What I'm doing isn't really that complex, but what you've provided is exactly that for which I'm looking.
