How to import a MySQL image into and Access OLE Object field

I have a MySQL database and am able to sync data to and from it through an ODBC connection just fine.  I am not however, able to sync images saved in a MySQL table into my Access table (OLE Object field type).

It works fine when i link to an MSSQL db and import into an access table.  I am able to view the images fine in Access but not when i import them from MySQL.  What am i missing?

You did not state the datatype(s) you are using in MySQL...
... Nor did you state how you were doing the "sync "

In any event, ... the BLOB (B)inary (L)arge (OB)ject datatype that is typically used in MYSQL to store images, is NOT compatible 100% with the OLE datatype in Access.

See this link for working with BLOB data in Access:
