Inserting a Picture

You can insert interesting visuals, such as pictures, into your forms and reports or even fields. For example, in an employee table a field could contain employee photos. Or a field might contain a Word document that is a recent performance review. When you run a report that includes this field, the report will display the contents of the field. In Datasheet view, you can double-click the field to display the field's contents.
