Am on my phone but hopefully these quick points help, otherwise I can get more specifics in morning.

I am assuming you have a path to an image as part of the record. If you are storing the whole image in the database than the image control should work easily.

Here's a very straightforward tutorial on displaying an image using an unbound image frame and setting the path in code.
http://www.databasedev.co.uk/bound_image_form.html

In access 2007 and up you can also use an image control and set it to be bound to a field containing the full path to an image. This will work for continuous forms.

If your record is only storing the image filename and they are all in the same path, adjust your forms query to include a computed field like (where filename is the column storing the image file name)

Logolink: "\\server\share\imagefolder\" & [filename]

Then set the image control to be bound to the logo link field.

Hope this helps.
