    Link to pictures (All)

    I'm a beginner to ACCESS so forgive me for asking a simple question. Have a DB where for each record a picture exists. When browsing in a form, the picture should show-up on the screen. For the sake of DB-size, I think including the pictures in the DB itself would not be efficient (ultimately there might be thousands of records with -therefore- thousand of pictures). Ergo, I want to put a LINK to the picture in the field.

    When I do this, all works but upon displaying a record in a form, I need to click on the link to display the picture.... there must be a better way that would allow me to have the picture displayed automatically (without any user intervention) and still have it linked (and thus outside the DB).... Anyone you can let me know how to do this?

    Yep, it did!

    Thanks,

    PS. This does use a few lines of VBA (I would have thought this should be possible directly) but -again- it works
