Tip Sheet

  • Using Access’ report feature, you can display pictures directly from any linkable source. Set the data type to OLE Object and drag pictures (from the web, from the desktop, and so on) into the picture field. The OLE Object field will correctly display the contents from an Access report.
  • Word cannot correctly display graphical contents of Access OLE Object fields. To use linked graphics in a Word mail merge, it’s necessary to use a text or memo field to contain the link (file, network, or URL specification) and use the includepicture field from Word.
  • Google’s Image Search is a great source of web-linkable images.
