Default Image Viewer

Just wondering can anyone help me please. I am only a learner with access so please go easy.

I am using access 2000.

Problem:

I have worked out from a lot of help from this forum how to put a cmd Button on my form to call the dialog window and store a file path in one of my text fields called “imagelinks” I can then view the image on a subform. I have two buttons one to insert a new image and another to delete the image. So far so good. Now I want to put another button on the form to preview the image with the default image browser. Can this be done so that if I gave a copy of the database to my friend and he has a different image browser the image can still be viewed by the click of that button.

I hope I have explained the above so it can be understood. myself.

Thanks in advance.

Thumbs up

Sorted with the use of ghudson’s “Browsing2” download sample.

Got the hint from another thread, something about the Shell command

Such a great site for newbies like myself.

Thanks anyway
