Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Attaching documents, part of Access 2010: Forms and Reports.
There is plenty of debate on whether you should actually attach files such as…images or Word documents to records within your database.…Some people claim that it leads to database bloat and slowdowns.…The Hyperlink option is definitely a good way to include links to additional…resources without actually embedding everything within the Access Database file itself.…But when you do have tables such as our Employees table here if I right click…on that and go into Design View that have the Attachment and OLE objects field,…let's scroll down here, I have got fields here, one of Attachment and one of the OLE Object.…
If you do use these two data types you will need to know how to actually make…use of them in your forms.…Now in this table we are using Attachment data type to store photos of our…employees and I've also got this other field here called OLE that's using the…OLE object attachment.…Now the OLE object is kind of an older and somewhat more obsolete data type and…it's basically just kept around for backwards compatibility.…
