I have forms and reports where I dynamically change the images. Here is an example of what i'm doing.

strPath = "L:\PiictureFolder\Employee" & employeeid & ".jpg"
image104.Picture = strPath

Is there any way to make this work with images on the internet.  For example
    strPath = "http://myWebSite/PictureFolder/Employee" & employeeid & ".jpg"

Hi,

maybe this is a solution for you:

Getting image.picture from the internet

The author of the solution describes a Windows API method ("URLDownloadToFile") to load a picture from Internet to a temp file and then link this temp file to the form picture.

Cheers,

Christian
