Pictures in a sub-report

I have two tables... main table and sub table.  In the sub table I have an attachment field.  In the attachment field I have 8 jpg files.

Then I have two forms.  A main form and a sub-form.  The main form has a record ID as does the subform.  This record ID field is the link between the main form and the subform.

In the subreport detail section I have an "image block".  The control source of the image block is "Picture" which is a field in the sub table.

But when I do a print preview of the main report I get the first picture over and over again... 8 times instead of each picture one time.

What am I doing wrong?

I just reduced the number of pictures to 4 to reduce the file size.  Please see attached.

Create a query from your table and use the query instead as the recordsource of your report.  For instance, create a query called qryDetail by adding the fields from the tblDetail table.  If you run the query you'll notice that you have multiple records this time (one for each attachement).  Then change the Recordsource of your subreport to qryDetail and voila, you can see your pictures.  Here's what your query should look like:
qryDetailRon
