Noted on your comments and others....
I can confirm that using the embedded DB in Base is a disaster - I
battled with it for a couple of years until I found out about using an
external engine - I use MySQL and have had _NO_ problems, (except my own
finger problems!!) since then.
Regarding images in the Database I have about 2600 records with a
maximum of 7 images per record. I had no problems with this under
Base/MySQL except that the DB file gets very large as a copy of each
image is included in the DB. I just recently came across a tutorial on
'Linking Images' rather than including them and this works like a charm
and the DB stays much smaller and therefore faster.
The tutotial can be found here -/_www.youtube.com/watch?v=IsHqqvn2zYg_/
Another nice plus is that if you control your image file names you can
be sure that your DB always shows the latest image - works for me!!
Hope this helps
