    Im using this code...
    Me!Image123.Picture = Me!ABCD

    ....where the unbound Field ABCD
    is a textbox showing the path to a
    JPG on theServer.

    When the above code runs, there is a
    "Flash" - looks very briefly like a MsgBox
    How can I PREVENT this from Flashing?
    (or "freeze" the screen like Excel's
    "Screen.Updating = False...

    TIA - Bob

    See:
    Suppress the "Loading Image" dialog
    at:
    http://www.mvps.org/access/api/api0038.htm

    It is actually important to do that: Access can crash (shut down by Windows)
    if you don't do this, and zip quickly through the records.

    And a couple of additional points, previously posted by Stephen Lebans:

    1) The Registry key MUST be "No" NOT "no" or "NO"

    2) On systems with XP or on systems with more than one user account,
    you must add/modify the key in both HKEY_CURRENT_USER and
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.

    Additionally, you can eliminate the "dialog" box flash if the image file is
    an uncompressed .bmp file -- then ACCESS doesn't have to uncompress it in
    order to load it into the image control.

    In addition to what the others have said, all of which is correct, I might
    add that very fast machines with fast video cards do not show the dialog
    box, except when the system is taxed by having lots of apps open. That's
    especially when the system is vulnerable to crashing.
