I have to get about 10,000 signatures into an Access 97 database. We have created an imaging routine that saves files as approximately 2kb TIFs (group 4 compression). It is impractical to save these files outside Access re security.

However we are having a problem with getting them into Access as if I copy and paste them, they get saved as BMPs and the file size increases, if I import the file it distorts the image size and display.

I have tried GIFs but can't get them to accept. JPEGs are too large.

Has anyone any suggestions that will help me? Will Access 2000 help?
