I want to insert clipart into access

I purchased MS Office 2003 Professional *ACADEMIC* as I'm using it for uni.
Purchased 10th March 2006.
I try to install clipart into the header of Form. Instead of a task pane
appearing asking to search for clip art. All you get is help. There is no
reference to clipart anywhere in Access.
All there is is a toolbar with a picture on it. You click this box to insert
a picture, however you have to find the clipart yourself. When I search
Office11 on my harddisk there is no clip art.
Why have Microsoft made it so hard to insert clipart?
Office 97 was the best and easist to use for clipatr, however Office 97 will
not work with SP2 installed on your computer.

Pity that you cannot answer the question.
Well I have Office 97 Professionl and an error occurs when I try to install
it.
Why did you respond to my message if you are using 97 not 2003?

I have both Access 97 and Access 2003 running fine on this machine.

If you want help, you need to provide more information. Saying "an error
occurs" doesn't tell anyone anything. What's the exact error message you
get? When do you get it?

As to clipart in Access 2003, your complaint appeared to be the fact that no
clipart installed when you installed Access. That actually isn't true: there
is a limited amount that gets installed, but my point was Microsoft makes it
extremely easy to download huge amounts of clipart from their website.

I rarely use clipart myself, so I just went into Access 2003 to double-check
how it works. With a form open in design mode, I selected Insert | Object
from the menu bar, then selected Microsoft Clip Object as the object type. I
was presented with a dialog entitled "Microsoft Clip Gallery 3.0" that
displayed all of the clip art available on my machine. That dialog has a
Help button on it. This is exactly the same behaviour as was the case in
Access 97.
