    How to Find Image Objects? (a2k (9.0.6926) SP-3 Jet 4.0 SP-8)

    I have been putting images on reports (four in total), started by embedding them, then changed to linking them.

    My db is about 12mb larger now after linking them.

    I thought I was careful linking the images, I decompiled, I imported all objects into a new db and still have the 12 mb excess size that I didn

    Since you created the database, you should have some idea which database objects are most likely to contain images. Look for image controls, OLE controls and for the Picture property of forms and reports. If you can't find the images, try this:
    - Create a copy of the database.
    - Compact the database.
    - Note the size of the database in Windows Explorer.

    Then start a cycle:
    - Delete a database object.
    - Compact the database.
    - Note the size of the database in Windows Explorer.
    - Compare the current size with the previous size.
    - Repeat.

    If the size drops by several megabytes at once, the object just deleted is a suspect for having contained an image.

    Use an image control instead of an unbound object frame. Image controls behave better than object frames.
