import image from database

 import image from database
I have a table in MSSQL with a Image datatype field
I want to import this image into a powerpoint presentation / Word document
(say in a macro - this would be the same code for word and powerpoint I
is this possible?

My current code being

    Dim rs As ADODB.Recordset
    Dim sqlstr As String
    Dim dsn As String

    Set rs = New ADODB.Recordset
    dsn = "dsn=webpro;uid=startweb;pwd="
    sqlstr = "SELECT img_data FROM theImage WHERE img_pk=12"

    With rs
        .CursorType = adOpenForwardOnly
        .LockType = adLockReadOnly
        .Open Source:=sqlstr, _
                        ActiveConnection:=dsn, _
'HERE PUT INTO MACRO .Fields("img_data")  'this is a SQL IMAGE datatype
    End With

I know in ASP one can use <img tags and response.binarywrite,
and I have tried record a macro but how to insert an image from a database?
converting the binary img_data to some picture format?

it should be possible, should'nt it?
