use an Image control. Access Image Control
Store filename in Access and set ControlSource of the Image to:
="C:\path\" & [ImgFilename]

WHERE
"C:\path\" is the path to the files
ImgFilename is a field in the table with the name of the file, including file extension

 -- alternately, you can construct the filename from your item#
       ="C:\path\" & [ItemNumber_Fieldname] & ".bmp"

Open in new window

Also, where do they pick the Item Number from ... is this a listbox or combobox, etc.???

Then you would use the AfterUpdate Event of your control to change the path to your image in the Image Control on your Form Object.
