First of all I have a table named tblSignatures.  The table has two fields...  Initials (short text field), and Signature (attachment field).

On a report I want to populate or make a scanned image appear of the signature scan in tblSignatures.  I have tried this as a control source for the image field but it doesn't work.:

=DLookUp("[Signature]","tblSignatures","[Initials] = '" & [Reports]![rptPurchaseOrder]![txtUserInitials] & "'")

Recommendations?

is your report linked to the table? (recordsource)
and do you have an image field on the report linked (control source) to the Signature in the recordsource?
if so, the image would be populated automatically.

The report's recordsource is tblPurchaseOrder so no, it is not linked to tblSignatures.  But tblPurchaseOrder does contain the Initials field.

maybe your recordsource should be a QUERY joining two tables on initials, and returning the signature field so you can use it as the control source for the image control.
