saving pic to dbase
I have been using Access as a database to my program in VB, for sure it can really save data, but is it possible also to save pictures to access? in short how can i save pictures to database?

my 2 cents
Access adds a lot of OLE overhead when storing pictures in OLE fields, and this isn't recommended. Use a text field to store a link to the file instead.
Compacting the database may alleviate the problem somewhat, but it is indeed impractical to store pictures in the database.
