Adding Images to Reports

Adding Images to Reports
Views: 53
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?

Adding Forms, reports, etc. to Multiple Front Ends Icon
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.

Bypass database row

Bypass database row Icon
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?

Getting rid of OLE images

Getting rid of OLE images Icon
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?

Adding a prompt to ask for value Icon
I have a report shooting off of the main table and other reports off of queries. They hold the same information so that part isn't really important.

However I would like for when one of the reports is opened to ask for a value to be entered in so that it will pull up only that record.
