Hello Deangellopeter,



Of course it is possible to insert images or even logos in to an access form file. To fulfill this purpose you first need to store the images somewhere.  MS Access provides several methods to store images, which is

  • In the database table OLE object field store the images directly.


  • Store images on your hard disk or in the network and make a link to them using a database table.


  • Use Visual Basic for Applications code to preview the images.


Thank you.

Follow this:
> Go to insert in the tool menu.
> Click on picture from there you can browse to the folder where your picture resides.
> Click on the picture and insert it into your form.
> In the properties box choose Embedded
> Then you have several sizing options under size mode that will allow you to size the picture the way you want it.
This will work with jpgs.
Or try using dbpix software to insert pictures in your database.
Thanking you
