The images are linked by their filepaths on my computer.
When I print the reports, the images show up sometimes (maybe less than 50% of the time)
I already tried to create pause in VBA code to allow the picture to load, but still doesn't work reliably.
It's very random.
Sometimes, the picture show on reports 9/10 times.
Sometimes, 1/10 times.

hi aaronyoung914

Perhaps you don't realize that the Image control can now render pictures stored in files on your computer. You used to have to use code to show a picture but not anymore! Set the ControlSource to be the path\file of the picture ~ easy squeezy, with no VBA needed since that can be stored in a table.

ControlSource can also be an expression, so if just the filename is stored, you calculate the path, no problem.

If the image location isn't stored in a table, but is known, you can set ControlSource to a function that gets it.

There is also a bug using Win64 & Access32
on some PC's, SOMETIMES the image will show, others it wont.
Usu re-installing Paint will solve it.

Reinstalling Ms paint? Why would that work? I'll try it and let you know.

Reinstalling paint did not help. Images still blank sometimes on reports.
