Bound Object Frame Blank

Bound Object Frame Blank

Bound Object Frame Blank

I have been attempting to use a technique I've used before to pull an image into a form in Access 2016. I populate the Control Source of the OLE Bound frame using a DLookup function:

=DLookUp("PicPath","tlkpCountries","CountryID =" & [txtCountryID])

This function pulls in the correct path from the table: C:\Data\Pictures\Maps\Armenia.jpg

However, the frame is blank on the form. I've tried populating the Control Source with the path C:\Data\Pictures\Maps\Armenia.jpg and the frame still comes up blank. I can't figure out what is wrong. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Bound Object Frame Blank

I was using the wrong type of form object. When I add an image frame, it works as expected. I just mis-remembered which type of form object to use.

Problem solved.
