Insert a picture in a form

Hi,

I have a table with +/- 2000 products. I have also in a seperate folder a picture of all these products. In a form with a subform i have several filters to detect one or more product.
Hereafter i can select one product to update in a new form. I would like to have the picture in this form. How do i do that?

Tx

This was cross posted in an Oracle Zone.  Is it Oracle related?

You might want to consider this or at least be aware of if you are dealing with images in an Access database ... and I can totally vouch for this program.  
http://www.ammara.com/dbpix/access.html

It does *all* the work for you. Examples show how to add a simple 'control' panel to Load, Save, Zoom In/Out, Size To Fit and much more.  AND ... virtually eliminates BLOAT associated with storing images in an Access MDB. I have 3 clients who sell commercial run-time products that use DBPix.

Note. I have no connection with DBPix ... except I have used it many times ...

Sorry, I made a mistake. It is MS Access related.

Can i manage pictures in access without an external application?

There are also examples here (as well as other excellent techniques/examples)

Scroll down to

Storing Picture data (Download PictureData.zip)
An example of loading and storing image data using Access internal PictureData format. Another way to avoid bloat and allow east image re-use.

In access form Goto to the "Code Builder"
Draw a picture box on form supposing the name picture1
and select the event of form "Current" event. This event occur every time when move from current record (previous or next).

use that code for picture loading:
picture1.picture=LoadPicture("Picture Path Here")

' For example 

picture1.picture=LoadPicture("c:\windows\webs\wallpaper.azul.jpg")

Open in new window
