Database won't accept jpg format

    I produced a database for my local car club which displays each member's car
    in their record. The database was created in Access 2003. It works fine on my
    desktop PC and also on the membership secretary's PC. However, even though I
    have the same version of Access installed on my laptop, I can't get it to
    display any jpg images. I've even tried to just create a form with a jpg
    image on it and Access refuses to recognise it. What can be the difference
    between my PC and laptop installs?

    Thanks Arvin, that's fixed the problem.

    Your second link gave the answer. The difference between my desktop PC and
    laptop was that the laptop had never had a previous version of Office,
    whereas I upgraded from Office 2000 on the desktop, meaning that Photo Editor
    was installed. The link states that Access uses this program as an OLE server
    for the various graphic file formats. So now jpg files are displayed without
    any glitches!
