Hi.. another post from me on how to retrieve a picture of a certain person from MS Access Database using the OLE Object.. Any one who can show me some samples how?

Thanks for the time.

try the following code. this is used to retrieve picture from blob field.

Dim CN As New ADODB.Connection
Dim RS As ADODB.Recordset
Dim DataFile As Integer, Fl As Long, Chunks As Integer
Dim Fragment As Integer, Chunk() As Byte, i As Integer, FileName As String

Private Const ChunkSize As Integer = 16384
Private Const conChunkSize = 100

Private Sub Form_Load()
    CN.Open "Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;Persist Security Info=False;User ID=sa;Initial Catalog=Pubs;Data Source=Test"
    Dim strsql As String

    strsql = "SELECT * FROM pub_info where pub_id = '9999'"
    RS.Open strsql, CN, adOpenForwardOnly, adLockReadOnly
    Set RS = Nothing
    Set RS = New Recordset
End Sub

Private Sub ShowPic()
    DataFile = 1
    Open "pictemp" For Binary Access Write As DataFile
        Fl = RS!logo.ActualSize ' Length of data in file
        If Fl = 0 Then Close DataFile: Exit Sub
        Chunks = Fl \ ChunkSize
        Fragment = Fl Mod ChunkSize
        ReDim Chunk(Fragment)
        Chunk() = RS!logo.GetChunk(Fragment)
        Put DataFile, , Chunk()
        For i = 1 To Chunks
            ReDim Buffer(ChunkSize)
            Chunk() = RS!logo.GetChunk(ChunkSize)
            Put DataFile, , Chunk()
        Next i
    Close DataFile
    FileName = "pictemp"
    Picture1.Picture = LoadPicture(FileName)
End Sub

you need to change your code for other database.

Whew.. Thanks for the code, i'll try understanding your code though it's a bit complicated for me to understand.. :D hehe.. Ahm, mind placing some comments on your code? or some brief explanations on some statements? Thanks again.

how about for other file like word document or video??
