Help! Convert msaccess bitmap image to longbinary

  • 12 years ago

    I have an access db table with a column of type ole object. When I right click in the column a context menu displays that allows me to add an image.

    Once the image is added the column displays 'bitmap image'. If I add an image via the column displays 'long binary format'.

    How can I convert these existing 'bitmap image' items to 'long binary format'? The bitmap ones are causing problems with object and control references. For example I can declere a bitmap object and load from a stream as it throws an exception.
