It seems that if I have an OLE field and I LINK a photo to it, if it is a bitmap image, or otherwise is displayed in the forms's field, the database goes up in size relative to the size of the photo. If, however, I LINK the field/photo using an icon for the image, the size of the Db goes up very little, a double click of the field/icon will open the image..... BUT, I only get an icon for the field on a Report. Is there a way to show a photo in a report, (or even the formâ€™s field), and NOT have the database size balloon out of control? Thanks!
