Hi there I have a question,

I'm making an Access input program which can insert records into a database. Now I have a textfield where the path to an image has to be inserted. What I want is that users can browse to the image in a list of files and then select one and let the path be inputted in the list. Does anybody know how to do this or where I can find an example of this.

Thanx in advantage,

Irwo Kandziora

RE: Image with preview!

See the following post. This should answer any questions you have about using an "Open" dialog box. You can do this via a browse button. When the user finds a file and selects it, it gets assigned to a variable that can then be written to a table. Check out the post and then let us know if you have any more questions.
