Adding Images to Reports
I am trying to work out a way to link images to my report. I will have a large number of images and don't want to embed the images into the database as that will make the size of the database massive.
Any suggestions on a way to link images (preferably) from a image storing facility on the internet into reports, so the image prints on the report?
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.
What's wrong... Please write below.
I am creating a database that will store one image and one or more documents per record, in addition to other text and numerical data. What are the best field types to use for the images and the documents. I will need to print reports containing these fields
If I have to make changes to front ends by adding more reports, changing reports, exports, etc., would I have to update each front end separately?
Right now, the test database resides on the server and each of the users has a short cut to their front end on their desktop. I need to know as I'm creating an instruction manual for useof the database and my boss wanted me to include in there about updates and what not because users will be able to request different reports that I will create for them and put on the frontend.
I am having trouble with the database row which many of my data in the database records have images and one do not have image. I did remove With Listview1 statement whichit works but I need them because I have the images in the records.
I know it would be impossible to remove the row but how about adding a new listview item without adding the database rows? I assume that it would be possible to get pass with the followingtips, for e.g.: hide the images row or end the sql connection then read the different rows table without the images row if possible to get pass?
I wanna display images stored in the database in binary form on reports,which m preparing for my ID CARD printing application.
what's the difference in storing images using link and actually storing it in the field, which is a better approch ?by the way I want solution for the later option
Can you put buttons on reports to either print the report or email it? If so, how would you go about doing this? In design view adding buttons with the wizard?
This is for a front end locked down database. The users do not have access to the entry forms only reports and query exports. I also took away the ribbon up top.

I've created and formated 3 individual reports and they are all print ready. My users wants to group and print all 3 of them in one go. I've tried to create a new report and then adding 3 individual reports into one but it won't format the pages correctly.
Is there an easy way to merge reports without having to reformat everything again? It looks ok in report view but in print preview and even after publishing to PDF it looks wrong
I blew up an Access database by uploading a bunch of images, sending it over the 2GB limit. I deleted all the images, and all queries, reports, etc. referring to the OLE images, then ran the compact/repair tool, but the database is still over 2GB in size.
It didn't run with the images in there and it runs now that I've gotten rid of the images and the OLE-field row, but it takes two hours to back up the database because Access still thinks it's dealing with a 2GB monster. Any suggestions for reducing the file size?
