Insert image into image col for Access

    I've inserted images into an sql table (image col) to view the image from an Access form

    This inserts the image successfully but Access doesn't display the picture:

    textcopy.exe /S myDesktop /U sa /P pass /D salesPeople /T tblImage /C personImage /W "WHERE ID = 001" /F c:picsguy.jpg /I /Z

    the Access error when double clicking the image container
    "a problem occurred while access data project was communicating with the ole server or activex control....restart the ole server...try again"

    If I insert the image directly from my Access form, it works like a charm.

    What seems to be the problem ?

    I'm interested in why you ask ....

    The Issue seems to be this:

    Added with Access, the data in the column is shown as:
    "Microsoft 3.0 photo editor photo"

    Added with TextCopy.exe, the data in the column is shown as:
    "Long Binary Data"


    So how do you get Access to display "Long Binary Data" as a picture

    I have no idea.
