I do not create fields in this way - I use ACCESS, but to put pictures
in a database, set the field type to lonbg binary, then bind a picture
box to the field.  Then simply acces the picture property of that
picture box. I'm not sure about the length of the field, I never set it
- I just let Access and VB sort that out.
