You don't mention the version of Access BUT if you open the Access Help file and view the Contents you should see a chapter about Creating, Importing, and Linking Tables. Within it you will find "Adding Fields and Chosing Data Types" where it explains how to do this. One of the choices it to create a field for OLE objects which includes pictures.
After you have created the table and populated it with necessary data (including the pictures) you can create the forms/reports as desired for the effect you want.
You can also investigate the sample databases that came with Access to get a better idea of what is involved. Make use of the various views (Form view/Data view/design view) and each object's properties to see how the "magic" happens.
This too might help you out (more efficient but requires some knowledge of coding):
You can also go here http://www.mvps.org/access/resources/downloads.htm (lots there to help you out if you are getting started in Access) and scroll to the bottom of the page and locate the Use Pic download. It is an Access database that demonstrates how to handle pictures in Access Databases.
Hi There Is there anyone out there who can sort my problem out. I am trying to add potographs to my database so that when I access the members form I can see a picture of the member. I thought this would be easy, just to have a location of pictures and sort of hyperlink it to the exact picture I requried to show, but this is not the case and I do not understand the way to do it. Come on you brainy bunch can you give me a easy solution.
