I'd like to be able to NOT STORE employee/candidate head shots in my Access 2013 database (back-end) because of the space it takes up.
Can 'links' to the photos stored on a folder on our terminal server or file server be stored in a particular field type in Access 2013 and when that employee's record is loaded in a form, the photo be automatically be displayed?
