Hello,
I’m using Access 2007 and I’m trying to insert a picture into a form according to the ID number of the form record,  I have tried the below with a text box as well as an OLE Object, with the text box I get literally text in the box as in: C:\Users\mlaroda\Desktop\MuscleTuneFitness\Pics\9.bmp

With the OLE Object box I get nothing but a blank box, I’m not a programmer so please keep it as simple as possible, the code I have is below

 Private Sub Command120_Click()
       Dim XFLName As Integer
    Dim strPic As String
    XFLName = ID
   
    strPic = ("C:\Users\mlaroda\Desktop\MuscleTuneFitness\Pics\" & XFLName & ".bmp")
    Me.tbl_Con_Photo = strPic


End Sub


Thanks in advance

Here is a sample.
Export Form1 to your db
Make the record source something that has ID in it.

Then play with it

Your control needs to be an image control
You need a control with ID as a control source to be on the form
It can be hiddden, but must exist
Your code needs to be

 Private Sub Command120_Click()
    Dim strPic As String
   
    strPic = ("C:\Users\mlaroda\Desktop\MuscleTuneFitness\Pics\" & Me.ID & ".bmp")
    Me.tbl_Con_Photo.Picture = strPic


End Sub

Picture.mdb
