Show Student Records with Picture in Grid format on Form

Dear Experts,

I know this question has surfaced here a couple of times and the answer is a bit over my head. But my users 'really' want to all students displayed in a table grid format on the form at one time. Right now I have the students display on a continuous form like in the sample database I uploaded here. When I do this only the top three students show up each time. I would really like to create a form that displays 'all' the students at the same time with a button that can click to a student details form (like in the sample I provided). The initial display form does not have to have any data entry. It only needs to display student record data. The data entry can happen in the details form.

Given the sample database that I provided is it possible? and how would I go about doing it. Thank you!

Thanks but this article shows how to display images on a continuous form. I am already doing this in my test db above. What I need to do is to display the images in Grid format like this:

There are no standard meand in Access to create such form. You can try to use 3-rd party tools like grid controls or use subforms.

How could I do this in subforms? Is there a reference on the web I can learn from or can you post here?
