    All the switchboard stuff in access is stored in a table. In access tables can store images.

    Question:

    Is it possible by adding another field to the switchboard table a bit of VB and image boxes to the switchboard form in order to achive images for each switchboard item?

    If the answer yes then how?
    If you know of any web pages with how tos on that would be good

    Thanks

    firestormer, what do you want the images to do, display when you open the Switchboard?
    You can either have the Images as "Imbedded" images or you can put an Image on the "Face" of the Command Button.
    To add the image to the Form look at the Main Menu>Insert>Picture.
    To add a picture to the command button's face click on the button and in it's properties click on the "All" Tab and the 3rd item down is Picture, when you click that row you get the 3 small buttons on the right, click those to start the Picture Builder.

    I was considering doing something similar to the way the switchboard labels the command buttons with the appropriote text but with images in a second unbound box and store the images in the Switchboard table.
