Okay, my boss gave me this killer project and I just have a brief question to see if anyone thinks I can do this.

Right now, I have a database for business card management.

I have 2 tables

1)Contact Info - Has various contact info fields
2)Business Card Table - Have 2 fields, CardID and Card (field is OLE object to attach business card to the database.

I have the CardID field in a relationship with the same field in Contact Info.

I have 2 questions:

1) I am using Access 2000, and would like to know if there is a way to allow the OLE field to be a jpg attachable field. I did not see it as an option, only .bmp :cry:

2) Is there a way, that when I pull the information up in a form, it can display the attached business card that is attached to the database?

What can I do?

Thanks for any help in advance.

If your two tables have a relationship defined... which, in this case, they should.... you simply create a query, based on the two tables that pulls in the information you want. You then create a form based on this query. The image, being linked to the Contact table would be displayed on the form.

I'll have to check on the other half of your question. Maybe someone else will respond beforehand.

When you select Insert Image, click on the Create From File option. This will allow you to Browse and select a .jpg image.

So, you've set a relationship between the two tables and now you can insert a .jpg image. Only thing left to do is create your query to base your form on.
