We have a database that has all of our animlas up for adoption.  In one of the forms there is an picture of the animal.  I'm creating a new report that needs to have all the specific animal information on it.  Below is the code that puts the picture on the form.  I didn't write it and I need help figuring out how/what I do on the report to get the picture inserted per animal.

SoftSlipPicPathFile is the field in the table that contains the picture


Private Sub cmdImgAnimal_Click()
Dim strFilter As String, strDefaultPath As String
Dim varFileName As Variant

On Error Resume Next

strFilter = ""
strFilter = adhAddFilterItem(strFilter, "Images (*.jpg)", "*.jpg")
strFilter = adhAddFilterItem(strFilter, "Images (*.bmp)", "*.bmp")
strFilter = adhAddFilterItem(strFilter, "Images (*.gif)", "*.gif")
strFilter = adhAddFilterItem(strFilter, "Images (*.png)", "*.png")

strDefaultPath = GetImagePicturePath_Generic("SoftSlips")
If strDefaultPath = "" Then strDefaultPath = CurrentProject.Path

Select Case Me.lblNoImgAvail.Visible

    Case True
        ' Display Open File dialog using
        ' adhCommonFileOpenSave from basFileOpen.
        varFileName = adhCommonFileOpenSave( _
            OpenFile:=True, _
            Filter:=strFilter, _
            flags:=cdlOFNHideReadOnly + cdlOFNNoChangeDir + cdlOFNExplorer, _
            InitDir:=strDefaultPath, _
            DialogTitle:="Locate Image file")
       
        If IsNull(varFileName) = False Then
            ' User selected a file.
            varFileName = adhTrimNull(varFileName)
            Me.SoftSlipPicPathFile.Value = varFileName
            Call FillInTheAnimalImage("SoftSlips", False)
        End If
       
       
    Case False
        If vbYes = MsgBox("Do you want to delete the image?", _
            vbQuestion + vbYesNo + vbDefaultButton2, "Delete the Image?") Then
            Me.SoftSlipPicPathFile.Value = Null
            Call FillInTheAnimalImage("SoftSlips", True)
        Else
            ' Display Open File dialog using
            ' adhCommonFileOpenSave from basFileOpen.
            varFileName = adhCommonFileOpenSave( _
                OpenFile:=True, _
                Filter:=strFilter, _
                flags:=cdlOFNHideReadOnly + cdlOFNNoChangeDir, _
                InitDir:=strDefaultPath, _
                DialogTitle:="Locate Image file")
           
            If IsNull(varFileName) = False Then
                ' User selected a file.
                varFileName = adhTrimNull(varFileName)
                Me.SoftSlipPicPathFile.Value = varFileName
                Call FillInTheAnimalImage("SoftSlips", False)
            End If
        End If
       
End Select

Is SoftSlipPicPathFile the PATH to the image, or does that field contain the image itself? Sounds like it's the path, but check that to be sure.

If it's the path, then you can add an Image control to your Report and use that section's Format or Print event to set the value of the Image Control's .Picture property:

Me.YourImageControl.Picture = Me!SoftSlipPicPathFile

Note that SoftSlipPicPathFile will need to be on the report itself (it can be in a hidden textbox) in order for this to work.

The image is assigned manually to each animal. It is stored in a folder on the server and assigned using the code I posted.  When you click the "assign image" it takes you directly to the folder.  I'm not sure how it knows where the folder is because in the code I don't see the folder name anywhere.

You wrote this:

SoftSlipPicPathFile is the field in the table that contains the picture

What value does "SoftSlipPicPathFile" contain in the table? Is it a standard file path, like C:\My Documents\My Folder\someimage.gif, or is it something else?

The code you supplied doesn't really save the values for you - it just calls other functions, like "FillInTheAnimalImage", which seem to do the heavy lifting for the process.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Do you mean" "...different for every "Animal"...?

Here is the very basic, simply system I use...
