Print Linked Images in a Report by AirPro
Posted: 8 Jan 01

How to code:
This code loads a picture from the local or network hard drive into an image control based on a Picture ID stored in a table.

1. Create a report
2. Add an Image control to the 'Details' section of the report
3. After selecting an image file as required by the image control wizard; delete it and set the image format properties to "linked" and "zoom".

Next double click the Details Section line so the "Detail" Properties box shows.

In the Detail_Format event (near the bottom) click it, so "Event Procedure" shows; then click the "3 dots" button to view the VBA code window

Next paste this line in as shown below

Me!Image(insert image number).Picture = "F:\path to your pictures\" & Me![field on the report that has a unique Picture ID] & ".jpg" (or other specified file type)

Here is an example from my report:

Private Sub Detail1_Format(Cancel As Integer, FormatCount As Integer)
    Me!Image74.Picture = "F:\DIVISION\AQD\Photos\" & Me![PHOTO.PHOTO_ID] & ".jpg"
End Sub

Now when you view the report it should show the associated linked picture for each record.
