Using Bound Object Frames

Access OLE Object fields let you embed or create a link to graphic images, sound or video files, or any other type of object for which you have an OLE 2.0 server installed and registered on your computer. OLE Object fields are unique to Access, and other applications, such as Visual Basic, can't directly read the data the fields contain. Access adds a special “OLE wrapper” to the data that identifies the OLE 2.0 server used to create and display or play the data.

The tab control that you add later in the chapter includes a bound object frame to display a photo for each employee. To use a bound object frame, you must add a field of the OLE Object type to the Employees table, and then insert the images from the files into the Employees table. The sections that follow describe how to add an OLE Object field to a table, insert objects into the field, and test displaying bitmap objects in a temporary bound object frame.
