    MS Access Image Scanning Database (2003)

    I am in the process of creating a database for a non profit school which will contain details on the students. Part of the projest is also to add a photograph of the student of their respective record. I am looking at the possibility of scanning in a photograpg via a flatbed scanner of perhaps via a web cam attached to the PC. I would also like to store the images in a seperate folder on the hard drive so that the database doesn't BLOAT in size. Grateful if anyone can pint me in the right direction or perhaps at a sample database which I can study. Ideally I would be looking at an Unbound control on the form with a clickable button below it. When the photograph is loaded into the scanner or the stugent is in front of the web cam, I can clich the button and capture the image. The image gets stored/saved in it's folder and a reference is made to the path and image in the table. Any help would greatly be appreciated. Many thanks in advance. I am using MS Access 2003 but can go backwards to 2000 if necessary.

    Welcome to Woody's Lounge!

    You'll find a sample database attached to <post:=296,892>post 296,892</post:>. It is in Access 97 format, but you can convert it to Access 2000 or Access 2002/2003 format. It shows how ti handle images in an unbound image control on a report and on a report.

    Hans
    Thank you for your prompt reply however, the database that you are pointing me at only links images that have already been stored on the drive. I'm looking somthing a bit more fancier that will allow me to scan in from within the database and then save the image to a designated folder on the drive.

    Any thoughts??

    Many thanks once again...

    I'm sorry, I have no experience with that. Hopefully someone else will have a suggestion.

    You may find something you can use at Image Handling on Tony Toew's website,
