    When i create a report in Access 2002 and insert a picture by going to Insert
    --> Picture, then i select a JPG file, it appears on the report fine. I read
    documentation that by default, images put on reports will display
    electronicaly and in print. The problem is when im in design view, and i
    click on File --> Print --> Print page 1 of 1, the image does not print. In
    fact, when i go to File --> Print, the images don't print. BUT i did
    observe, that when you click on PRINT PREVIEW, then click on the print icon
    from print preview, the images print just fine (but all 120 pages also print)
    so if i wanted to print only the first 10 pages, or only the last 10 pages,
    no images on the report will print. Any suggestions?

    Thank you in advance.

    Surely, the print dialog for my printer (an HP g85 all-in-one) has a place
    where you can specify the pages to print... it is easy to guess the page
    numbers of the first 10, but you may have to go to the end/last page in
    preview to find the page numbers for your "last 10 pages" request.

    The sample imaging databases at http://accdevel.tripod.com illustrate three
    approaches to handling images in Access, and the download includes an
    article discussing considerations in choosing an approach. Two of the
    approaches do not use OLE Objects and, thus, avoid the database bloat, and
    some other problems, associated with images in OLE Objects.

    If you are printing the images in reports, to avoid memory leakage, you
    should also see MVP Stephen Lebans' http://www.lebans.com/printfailures.htm.
    PrintFailure.zip is an Access97 MDB containing a report that fails during
    the Access formatting process prior to being spooled to the Printer Driver.
    This MDB also contains code showing how to convert the contents of the Image
    control to a Bitmap file prior to printing. This helps alleviate the "Out of
    Memory" error that can popup when printing image intensive reports.
