i need to save an image to my project using Visual Basic as my Front End and MS Access as my Back End....


i am working on a Student Detail and i need to attach Student picture on each record..

my problem is saving the image....

i already have the code for uploading it

Hi,
You said the code is already uploaded. But i cant see the code.

There are two ways in which you can save the image in youe access database.
1) the simplest way is to store the path of the image.
2) you need to use FileScriptingObjects method to find whether the image is actually stored anywhere in your hard disk or not. If yes, then use file handling methods to convert the image to long binary and save it in your database. To open the image once again you need to convert it to the actual image and then display.

for any further assistance feel free to mail:

Load the picture to the picturebox. Then add it as usual to the Binary field as you do with text fields.
That will like it.

RecordSet.AddNew
Recordset.Fields("YourFieldName")=PicBox.Image
Recordset.Update
