I am trying to make a DATABASE of bitmap images...


R

rlamou

I got the text field to work right, but
the bitmap field keep giving me this message when I try to open it up...

The operation on the Bitmap Image object failed.

the OLE server may not be registered.

To register the OLE server, reinstall it.

what does that MEAN?

you should do this in SQL Server 2008 Express, it has this
functionality called 'FileStream'.

it's incredibly powerful; and it's 10,000 times more efficient than
either:
a) storing paths in database
b) storing Ole Objects in database

you can actually still use image-bound controls using Access with the
Image datatype (which is what filestream uses)

Aaron's to every Access question is to not use Access, which is pretty
worthless in an Access forum.

Your question is not totally clear, but here are a few notes. If you are
using Access 2003 or older, you definitely should not be storing the images
within the database, you should store them separately and store their
location in the Access database. Otherwise you have many many problems.
And so if you are using Access 2003 or older, your question becomes a moot
point.
