    Through the link you mentioned, I was referred to:
    http://support.microsoft.com, you can find the Access Knowledge Base.
    Article Q158941, “ACC: How to Load OLE Objects from a Folder into a Tableâ€
    It says it is applicable to Access 95 & 97 at the end. I suppose there might
    be easier way in Access 2003. Isn't there?
    I will follow as the instruction in that Knowledge Base but if there is any
    easier way in AC2003, let me know.
    I do remeber once I made student ID cards with Access long time ago and
    stored photos inside my db.
    but on that time I didn't face such a difficult task of dealing wwith photos
    in ACCess.

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!
