Huge MDB using OLE images?

Huge MDB using OLE images?

Post by Jerry Boon » Wed, 10 Feb 1999 04:00:00

I designed a simple access97 db that uses a simple ole field in which I
embed a jpg image (53k from the digital camera).  To my astonishment, my mdb
grows approx 2mb for each picture I place in a record!!!!!!!!!!!

This is not user/developer error.  If anyone knows how to reduce this growth
(the blob), please let me in on it!


1. Adding OLE Image from MDB into form without a datacontrol

The documentation I have does not seem to cover this.

The jet database contains and OLE field with images. I need to show these in
a form that uses coded database statements instead of a data control with
bound objects. I know this works with the data control. What method can be
used to update the OLE container when the record changes without using a
data control???

2. Simple Stored Procedure problem.

3. How do I start an access database (mdb) from VB4 using OLE automation

5. Storing and viewing images in .mdb database using Vb5

6. Browsing large datasets.

7. Retrieving OLEObject (Image) from MDB using ADO

9. OLE/Image Datatypes using in IDC and HTX

10. Using OLE to display an image

11. NEED: Decompress images using OLE or DDE

12. Copy RecordSet from mdb to mdb using VB

13. Huge difference between OLE-db across network vs local DB
