    Access: photos in table, forms


    by jade dragon ·

    I am creating a database in Access. I produce and sell photographic greeting cards. Using wizards, I have created the customer table, order table and order details table. I have created a table for listing individual cards (my product) and in that table I included a field for the photos. My goal is to be able to look at a product in form view and see a photo thumbnail as well as the text description. I have tried several different ways to accomplish this, but the best I get is an icon. It opens a Netscape browser window and displays the photo. Not what I want. I want the photo to show on the form. Then if someone is taking an order by phone, they can see the photo and answer any questions regarding it. I would prefer to link rather than embed, for size considerations. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Jade Dragon
