Question
I am working on a database for a collection of Toby Mugs. I have a table with MugModelNumber, MugName, MugSize, MugYear, and price.

I have a folder name TobyMugPics which are saved by the Model Number. I would like to insert a picture with each mug on a form. I would appreciate any help you can give me.

I am using Windows7 and Access 2010. Thanks

Answer
Place an unbound Image control on your form. In the On Current event of the form, set the Picture property of the form to the path to the image for that model.

Hope this helps,
