Sights and Sounds in Access Forms
I would like to add two things to a form. I have Googled them but I either get hit with fancy explanations why it happens (or not) or I get URLs with add-ons for sale that solve the problem only for me, but not for everyone else opening the form (that is, everyone in the office would have to install it).
1) Whenever I put a transparent GIF on a form, it's not transparent. I can place the same GIF in a Word document or a PowerPoint slide and it's fine. Put it on a form and it's no longer transparent. What gives? I created the GIF in Microsoft Photo Editor. Any solutions?
2) Is there anyway to merely play a WAV file, say using a command button, without having a third party program pop up, show itself, and then stay there? I just want to play the WAV in the background.
Thanks in advance.
