Default Embedded gifs and forms

When I insert an OLE object into my table and try to view it in a form, I only see the icon, not the image. If I doubled click the OLE box, I am linked to the image.

Any help would be appreciated.

When you insert the object, are you unchecking the box "Display as icon"?

I made sure I did not check 'view as icon'. Do you know what property could effect this in field properties and form properties?

I ran into a simular problem earlier and couldn't resolve it. I was using access 2002. In the end I converted the images to bmp's and access liked that. The only problem is that you can't have a transparent bmp so you have to set all the program background colours and hope for the best. :(

Perhaps someone has a better solution

There's a limit to what Access can display as an actual file. These types are listed in the Insert dialog when the "Create New" radio button is selected.

The only way I can think of putting it in another way would be through ActiveX
