    I have an Access database that I built to store my music collection in. I have the CD cover artwork stored in a separate folder and was able (although I don't remember exactly how I did now - long time ago) to store the file path in the database and use it to display the artwork on the entry form. What I would like to do (if it is possible) is to use the same artwork files in search results, where I could search for a particular artist and it would return the CD artwork for all of the artist's CD's. I would like for the images to be clickable to take me to the record on the form that matches it. Hope that makes sense. Is this possible in MS Access? If so, does anyone have a link or something that explains how to set it up?

    I need some form & field names to work with. An example would be nice.

    OBP,

    Thanks for the offer. I believe you helped me once before on this database and were a big help. I am at work right now and this is a personal project (and I am covered up at the moment) - I will try to get something posted as soon as I can.Can you still post databases on here (I seem to remember seeing something about not doing it).

    I will try to get you some information if I can't post a copy.
