Create a Slideshow in Access

Use images and the OnTimer event to create a controllable visual show.

Incorporating pictures into Access is a great thing. It provides a way to depict products, personnel, or any other items you want to show via pictures instead of via a textual description. Typically you do this by storing the paths to graphics files in a table field. In this manner, the graphics and the table data are connected. On a form, when a record is displayed, an image control can be updated with the graphic found at the related path.

This hack doesn’t imitate such a data-based scenario. Instead, it works with an unbound form to display unbound graphics. You can mix the functionality described here with a data-bound solution. For example, while a form displays database records, the unbound graphics functionality could be incorporated into the form header or footer.
