Problem Displaying JPEG Images Stored In Access DB

Aug 12, 2005

It may seem a really silly question but is there any restrictions as to the file types that can be stored in an Access DB.

I havent used Access in a while, but have been asked by a friend to create a simple DB holding info about cars he is selling, he only wants to hold thumbnail images of the cars so I can either link or embed the pics! However if I try to link or embed a jpeg image nothing appears in the bound object frame except for the image title i.e. bmw325i.jpg if I do exactly the same with a bitmap image the pic is displayed???

The only other difference I have noticed is that in table view of the relevant table a bitmap appears as Bitmap Image whereas a JPEG appears as Package????

Any ideas

Thanks in advance

Queries :: Unable To Open Or Design Queries From Older Access Files

Jan 1, 2014

Im trying to work on an db in Access 2007 that was migrated from Access 2003 (in fact its been migrated several times starting from Access 97). It executes and runs with no problems in both versions.
The problem is when trying to open some queries (not all) - Access is unable to open the query in design mode and gives me this error :

" is not a valid name. Make sure that it does not include invalid characters or punctuation and that it is not too long.

However, as I cant open it - I cant check it. Im pretty sure none of the fields have invalid characters (they do have spaces) and Im not sure how long is too long....

Forms :: Open And Save Doc / PDF Files Within A Form?

May 21, 2014

In a record, I want to have a text box which displays the file path to a .pdf or .doc, docx file. If you double click in the text box the file within the text box opens. If there is no file path I want a small command button to be visible next to the text box, which will launch an explorer that will locate and save the path of a chosen .pdf or .doc, docx file.

I have a field within a tblPriceList called quotefile, which I want to store the file path.

For info. This is not going to be a major multi user database, but the quote files will be stored on a vserver, not the PC the DB is being used on.

Modules & VBA :: Open Files With Hyperlinks And Send As Attachments?

May 15, 2014

I have a database which has several records with at least 5 documents needing to be attached to each record. Using attachments or OLE would cause considerable bloat, so I opted for hyperlink fields for all the document types necessary to save with each record. However, now I am faced with an issue. It is easy enough to write code to open the files by following the hyperlinks, as well as write code to send an email, but how would I go about combining the two? I need to write a code that will attach these documents to an email, as attachments and not as hyperlinks. I know with excel documents, I could follow the hyperlink and send the document by email through excel, but I also have images converted to pdf's that need to be sent as attachments.

Modules & VBA :: Searching Subfolders To Open Files Using File Names

May 19, 2015

I am using Access 2010 with Win-7.Shared, split database with several users.Database Purpose:PM Procedure for Medical Equipment..To be able for the user to copy the file name of 1 or more technical manuals and paste into a table used for a subform on the procedure parent form.Users can then open the related files stored in a common directory that are related to the procedure when later reviewing the procedure .

Problem:File path on the common drive for our group remains static Syspro_5VOL1BIOMEDCOMMONEquipment (Service Manual).The subfolders are not static.There is an unlimited number of sub folders by vendor, model, or make.The subfolders sometimes get renamed as vendors change ownership.The file itself usually does not get renamed.New subfolders get added as needed.Everyone in our group has access to this area of the server.

Question:Is there a way in VBA that when a user opens the procedure record form and dbl-clicks the name of the file in the subform, Access can start at the parent folder and keep searching through all the subfolders until it finds the file?I cannot depend on people in my group to be able to correctly update hyperlinks so I need a way people with no Access knowledge can even use even if its a little slow.

JPEG Prossing From SQL DB

Nov 19, 2004

Hi everyone.

I have a problem displaying jpg files in a bounded image object.

After connecting Access 03 with ODBC to a SQL Server DB (SQLSDB) I wanted to display the image content of a table (jpg files) in Access. Instead of images Access returns the image filename.

After installing Microsoft Converter Pack and Photo Edit from an old Office XP Edition I was able to display jpg in unbounded image objects and simple image objects, but still the problem with the bounded image object witch contain the jpg files remains.

Any Suggestions ???

Thanks for your time

Changing JPEG In Subform

Jun 1, 2005

I am working on a database with two main tables: One table that is linked in from another database, and another table contains addresses to the location of jpegs that correspond with the records in the linked table. (Every record does not have corresponding jpeg, only some of them do.) The way the forms are currently set up, there is a main form and a subform. The main form contains only a combo box where the user can choose a record. The subform shows the rest of the information pertaining to the record, including the jpeg. The problem is that all the other information changes when the user chooses a different record - except for the jpeg, it stays the same. The code to pull the jpeg into the form works when under the form load procedure, but the jpegs do not change when a different record is selected from the combo box on the form. I tried to do this a straight forward way, and then I tried using the RaiseEvent command, but nothing seems to work. I have a relationship b/t the 2 connecting fields, and I have tried all 3 join types. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Modules & VBA :: Encrypt / Decrypt JPEG Image / Binary File

Oct 7, 2014

I am looking for a function that will allow me to encrypt/decrypt single image files as and when required. I have built my own simple one to encrypt a string that will be stored in a filename as all the ones I found created unusable filenames.

However I don't know where to start with the image file encryption.

(Any better way to encrypt a string that can be used in a file name that would be great too. My method is a bit basic).

How To Open A Dialog Box To Move Files Inside A Folder That Is Setup As Current Folder

Sep 2, 2015

I'm trying to automate a process of selecting a set of file/s and move them in a folder. When I click on a button, it should open a current folder that is setup in the code.

Lets say that I have a folder C:documents est, and very time I click on the button, it should open the dialog box with that path so I can select the files from another folder, drag them there and they will be saved in that folder.

This will form part of wider automation that will send an email stating that those file/s where placed in that folder.

I have in the same form where the button is placed, 3 check boxes that needs to be passed to the email as well that one or all the files where placed in the folder.

Command Button To View PDF / Excel File Or JPEG From Object Within Database Table

Aug 12, 2013

I have created a database for a church cemetery. It contains the usual names, birthrates deaths, etc.... I have also created a map of the cemetery in PDF format with the lot number highlighted which is assigned to a particular record. I did the same in excel with a layout of the lot and a JPEG picture of the grave marker. In my table I created Three columns - Site Plan, Lot Plan, and Grave marker. I insert the specific site plan, lot plan, and jpeg picture using the "insert object" in the table. On my form after a search, I have created three buttons.. Site Plan, Lot Plan & Grave Marker.

I have looked and experimented trying to assign these command buttons to open these files on the form. I don't have any experience with macros or VB code.

Using Files Created In Access 2003 In Access 2000

Nov 30, 2004


The company I am consulting with uses Access 2000 and has no intentions of upgrading. I currently do not own Access on my laptop.

I was planning to purchase Access 2003 for my laptop but am concerned that files I create in 2003 might not be "editable" in 2000 even if I choose the 2000 format when creating new databases.

I'm just wondering if anyone has tried creating a file in 2003 (using the 2000 format - as I'm told you can choose what format you want to use) and then edited it in 2000. I want my client to be able to edit the files in 2000 once I've moved on. (I can get 2003 for about the same price as 2000 - so my preference would be to get 2003.) The other obvious reason for going for 2003 is that I could run into the reverse challenge if I own 2000 and my next client uses 2003. At that point, I'd be forced to upgrade to 2003.

My databases are not complex - but do include some customized macros.

Any help, comments... appreciated.

MS Access- Workgroup Files

Jul 18, 2006

We are running two versions of Access (97 and 2003) on some of our machines. We recently set up a new workgroup file, but it seems that on the machines that have the two versions of Access the workgroup file reverts back to the old setting everytime the user logs in again.
What do we need to do to prevent the workgroup file from switching back?
