Using MS Access/Upload images



I am using access 2010. I have the BE tables on an SQL server and FE forms and tables using access 2010. My question: how can I upload images? I would love to have something similar to attach files as in access which is unfortunately not available in the SQL BE tables.



I don't recommend storing files of any kind (including images) INSIDE your database. I recommend saving them in a shared network folder and then storing the path and filename in your database. I explain how to do this in my Access Imaging Seminar.
