I have recently transferred an MS Access 2003 .adp file from a Windows Server 2000 maching to a 2008 machine and can no longer print off reports which contain .tif files.


I get an error message : - "Microsoft Office Access doesn't support the format of the file 'FR_A10-0002.tif"

I have made sure that in the Office setup I have installed all the Graffic filters.

I am able to view the .tif file through Windows Picture viewer but MS Access will not display the report.

Can anyone offer a solution?

Thanks

What version of Access please?
I don't think Access OLE or linked fields supports TIF images...
How, *exactly* are you trying to display the images in the report?
(Linking, OLE, attachment field?...etc)

The only way I can see this working is if you use the Access 2007 or higher database format (.accdb) and insert the TIFF images into an "Attachment" datatype field.

Simple sample attached
Database25.accdb

Thank you for letting me know that it could not be done in Access 2003.  In the end I converted the .tif files into .png files which will work as a temporary solution.
