following your first line of thought - the old laptop shows a path  of C:\Rogers images\imagennn , but on the new laptop shows <Rogers laptop C Drive>\Rogers images\imagennn.

How do I change the first part of the address on the new laptop so that it looks to C:\Rogers images\imagennn? which is where the full image resides.

WOW!! thanks for that info on the MDB Viewer!!! It will help in my other work!!!


Please, if I do a report directly from a table, it shows me the image from stored in a binary field. It shows me the thumbail and also allows me to click to view the image.

But, If I créate a report from a database VIEW that includes the field as it is, the thumbail does not work, and do not allow to open the image.

what can be wrong?

thank you

Hi BarbaraNib:  I'm not sure if I fully understand your question (and I don't think it is on-topic in this discussion about database migration). But, my short answer is: A thumbnail in the database is not a full JPG image. Rather, it is a so-called jpeg stream, and making it visible may require some extra steps. I know this isn't a full answer but hopefully it puts you on track to finding one.
