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!
     
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
