I am trying to create an interface on an Access form that allows the user to insert a .bmp image file into the database. I have created a varbinary(max) field in the table but have  no idea how to actually get the image to load. Thanks for any help

OK, I got the image to store in the table, but I can't get it to display on an Access form. I dropped an Image control on the form and pointed it to the field with the bmp image but I just get a blank box when I open the form. Any ideas?
