setting the source of an image control in ms/access

Hi -
I do have a set of images that I want to show on an MS/Acess report. The images are JPG files, so what I need is to set the data source  of a control (image control?) to the file being reported.
How to I do it? Which control (Unbound object?) (Image?)
any help will be appreciated - this is urgen and controls from DBPIX and CSXIMAGE are letting me down
\thanks

In access 2007 or newer, you can bind an imagecontrol to a text field that contains the path of the image.
Just set the controlsource property equal to the field name that holds the imagepath.

That's quite easy. You can see a demo here which even allows for download of the pictures:
