We have an Access 2003 database that works fine on Windows XP, Vista and 7.  However on Windows 8 PCs, when running a report that pulls in a JPG logo, we get the following error:

Error number: 2114

Database name...doesn't support the file format of the file 'G:\Logo.jpg' of file is too large.  Try converting the file to a BMP or GIF format.


I know that converting the file does work (and I'm sure when I opened the original JPG in Photoshop it seemed bigger (but I may be wrong).

Any ideas?

I've seen this before, but I don't recall the real issue.

FWIW ... you can use this outstanding free tool to quickly convert to any other format (like ICO, GIF, etc ):

Hi MX - converting the images to BMP files did the trick (although I'm sure it has something to do with Win8).  I'll retry when SP1 comes out.

All the best.
