I want to create a Multiple Items web form that has an image for each record whose data source is a url.

Would also like to know how to do this on a normal Web Form. I've succeeded by using a WebBrowser control but know this is not right. Need an Image control that can set source in event handler.

I'm returning to this now - still struggling

Simply want report that shows the jpgs referenced from the urls in image_url_text field.

If possible a form that you enter the url into and that then saves and dispalys it.

Many thanks

wagazub,

Just so we are clear on the technology.
Unless you create a Data Access page, MS Access cannot create "Web Forms".

If you chose to use Data Access Pages, note that they are Obsolete (deprecated) in Access 2007 and newer format Databases.
Your DB must remain in the Access 2003 (or older) format in order to use them.

If you need a True "web Form" the you really need to develop your system in a True "Web" development platform (DreamWeaver, .net, ...etc)

If all you really need is a Form that displays a url image for each record (Not a web form specifically)... then look into this product:

boag2000:

I'm developing Asp.Net forms that do this without difficulty. I so happen to want to do access images on the cloud from a full client Access database as well.

I have now found a solution. Use dbpix and look here: http://www.ammara.com/support/samples/access-web-images.html

Now I see that your mail referred to the same product.

Many thanks
