Snapshot.mdb

It is usually preferable NOT to store OLE objects like snapshots in the table itself. It causes massive database bloat. The usual solution is to store the snapshots as files on the hard drive and store the file name in the table. This sample demonstrates how to to this.

1) Store the snaptshots in the same directory as the database. 2) Store the appropriate snapshot name in the table. 3) Programmatically set the .Snapshotpath property of an Snapshot Active X control to the appropriate file in the On Current event of the form.
