Question
QUESTION: I'm new in making slideshow in form at Microsoft access. I had tried with timer event but it didn't OK for me and I don't know how to add photo to display slideshow. Please, tell me how to make slideshow with vb that includes in ms access.

ANSWER: Why would you do this in Access? If you have Access, you probably have Powerpoint. So do it in powerpoint. You can launch the Powerpoint presentation from within your Access app using Office Automation.

Hope this helps,
