Last Modified: 2013-03-13
I have an Access file. It has been imported from the SQL file and it contains a long binary field, which was an image in SQL (stored in binary format). Now in Access I want to display this Long Binary field as a real picture what it should be.

How can I do this?

I am trying to send this Access file containing the JPEG image in the form of long binary. It is supposed to be a picture which I want to display in the Report.

I m trying, but the attachment is not attaching. It's a big file. I'll try again later.

Required a little more of tuning the code. Has helped finally. I was really late in responding though, owing to high travel and busy schedule. Thanks.
