Store all picture files in the same directory as your Base file.
Call menu:Tools>SQL and execute:
ALTER TABLE "PicTable" DROP COLUMN "Pics";
ALTER TABLE "PicTable" ADD COLUMN "Pics" VARCHAR(100);
where "PicTable" should be replaced with the actual name of your table
and "Pics" with the actual name of the field in that table.
The database will be defragmented and is no longer accessible. Restart
the office suite, open the database and your form. A double-click on the
picture control still opens a file picker dialog. But now it stores only
the file name in the database field and loads the actual picture data
from that file.
If you want to convert this embedded HSQL database to a "real" database
follow this description:
Hope this helps.
