Hi Richard:

I was watching the free video and extended cut video how to have images in a database and I did it a long with the video.  Thank you that helped.  Is there a way I can have a sample image or something above the profile picrture field so I know or someone that uses the database to put the picture in the picture in the image box.  I know i have the button under neith to click and select a picture I just want to have the image sample above the propfile picture text box.  Ia there a way I can do that.  If you want me to i can send you a sample of what i'm talking about what i want to do

Are you asking if you can just have a default value picture that's always there until someone puts in a picture? Maybe I'm not understanding what you're asking. You can use the upload images button at the top right of your post to share a screenshot of what you're trying to do.

Yes that what I want to do!

Assuming your doing it how Rick teaches, not storing the files in the database and calling them from a folder. Just set the default value of that field that has the folder location to the location of the "sample" placeholder picture.

Hi Adam

Sorry maybe I don't understand, you just want that profile picture to contain a default picture right? Like C:\desktop\sample.jpg

Just click that field and set the default value of it to C:\desktop\sample.jpg or whatever your location is.

Or are you asking something else?

Adam is right on the money... just set a default value in either the table or the form. Put that picture where you want it. Make it a picture of me if you want. :)

Thank you Adam.  I got it.  If i need help with anything do you have an email I can contact you or just send comment here?  I really appreciate your help.  I just started with the Access courses in January and on the expert level already just saw that the image is in Expert 4.

Richard
I forgot that I saw that in Expert Level 4 is the images.  I was actually watching that yesterday.

hi Adam:

   This is what i wanted to sdo.  I was watching Expert Level 4 and saw that in the lesson that Richard was showing how to do images and saw he put a boarder of the picture so I know or someone knows that where the picture is placed when I pick a picture.  Please see screen shot i sent.

Ah OK, that's quite different then I was getting from your question haha. Glad you got it figured out.

As for future help. Feel free to post on the forums and hopefully me or someone can help you. Rick does an amazing job at making all these videos and still finding time to answer forum questions. Otherwise if it's something that's going to require someone to research or look at your database. You may want to be aware this exists too AccessDev.NET

Hi Adam:

I know Rick says not to store attachments in a database.  I have a database for my Suffolk County Accessible Transportation (SCAT) I use special transportation I use to go to work and anywhere I want to go in suffolk county.  I keep tracked of all my trips and cancels in the database and also in the database I attachment files that i have tickets I scan to my compute and upload them in to the database so i know what ticket number and also I keep tracked of my receipts when i get a receipt from the driver.  I only store 2 fiiles in each record.  I have date field I search by date range when i search for certain data I have tab where i can click on the attachment field and swee the files.  I know Rick says not to store files i the database.  I created this database way back in 2004 and didn't know not to store attachments in a daatabase.  I have over 1,000 records in the database but only like 2 files for a record.  I want to know if this is okay or what i can do.

I mean you're just bloating your database size. Ideally, it wouldn't be that way. About your only option if you want to undo that though would be to get all those photos, either copies or the original, and put them in your folder and set them up the right way. Then delete the stored photos after. Rick may need to chime in here, I don't use attachments for this reason, so I don't know if there's a way with VBA to automatically copy all of them into a windows folder.
Richard Rost

Yeah, in fact Alex and I were just talking about this. You can - with some fancy VBA coding - extract all of the attachments from the database, save them as files on the hard drive, save the locations of those files in the table, and then delete the attachments. Once they add that 25th hour to the day, maybe I'll write something up. LOL
Joseph Messina

That is good idea.  Can you make a techhelp vidro what you and Alex were talking about how to do that
Richard Rost

It will be beyond the scope of a TechHelp video. It's pretty complex stuff and it's very specific. Perhaps a separate Template. TechHelp videos also have to have mass appeal.

Ok Thank you for letting me know.
