    Picture report problem (2003)

    I have a database with the pictures stored as a path in the table and then an unbound control to display them in the report. When I try to print the report with 170 records and pictures, I get the following message:
    "doesn't support the format of the file 'C:UsersZavePicturesDSC_2050.JPG,' or file is too large. Try converting the file to BMP or GIF format."

    Any ideas what to do ?
    Thanks

    I tried an expirement and used smaller images and it worked fine. Does anyone know the formula for how many images multiplie by what size goes overboard? Does it depend on my RAM nd computer?
    Thanks

    I don't really know the answer to your questions, but look at the suggestions by Stephen Lebans in reports with images(the error in format or size?)

    Thanks. I tried all the options aside from changing to BMP on the fly since I was not sure how he was doing it, but none helped. I think I will just use irfanview to knock down the images to a managable size and then it works.
    Thanks
