Problem with linked OLE fields

    Hi there

    I'm having a very strange problem with an OLE field in an Access
    database (the version is 2003). The field in question contains a
    mixture of embedded and
    linked PowerPoint presentations. The embedded presentations work just
    as you'd expect - I can right click on a field in the table and choose
    edit, which will open the presentation in PowerPoint. However some of
    the
    linked fields throw an error:

    '..can't open the file containing the OLE object'.

    However, what's confusing me is I can right click, copy that field and
    paste into a Powerpoint document. Any ideas what can be causing this?
    The problem means we're having problems extracting the items from the
    fields programatically.

    Thanks

    Keivn Poulton

    Hi Kevin

    Not really sure what could causeing the problem but as we use many OLE
    fields I flicked around the web to try and see what may be out there.

    The best I could find was on the main MS site. It may help to have a look
    at this link.
