I am able to paste and view photos in Access 2000 using a form. I wrote a program in Visual Basic to access the database using the MS ADO data control. I am able to read all text fields once I connect and set the Data Source on my text boxes. I added a picturebox and tried to connect in the same way. I even tried using a Data Repeater with a picure box in that and this also failed. The only way I was able to see a photo was with the loadpicture function.
MyPicture.Picture = LoadPicture (App.path & "MyPic.bmp")
Has anyone been able to successfully read a picture object from Acces 2000 or an imagebinary Type field from SQL Express.
