    Default Is there a way to create image thumbnails that can

    fit several to a page. It would be several records and then we'd like to click on an image (or button - I'm VERY new at this so am in total novice mode) where we can then view it as a larger image? Thanks for your help.

    Check the forum for some sample that I posted sometime ago..
    there is also a very nice activex control that is very useful for creating thumnails.

    I will do that. Thanks VERY much. We just downloaded the trial 5 days ago and I'm going nuts here! I have a boss that wants an image database done in a week (he keeps coming by my desk saying, "Is it done yet?") Yikes!It looks like I will need to learn xbasic, action scripting, etc. etc. in addition to the Alpha Five database! I know that will take more than a week, so I really appreciate your help!

    This is a do-it-yourself solution to creating low resolution viewfiles: Creating a Low Resolution Viewfile.

    Tell him:

    "they didn't build Rome in a day"
    "patience is a virtue"
    "haste makes waste"
    add your own phrase here...

    He sounds like a person who would give Michelangelo a paint brush and say paint the ceiling by tomorrow and make it a nice picture. And we thought Dilbert was sarcastic. Some people are too dumb to be anything other than a boss.

    You can try this message thread for some ideas. Just paste the line below in the address bar all on one line and click. It should take you to a thread called "The bigger picture". This is probably too advanced for a beginner, but it will show what is possible.

    http://msgboard.alphasoftware.com/alphaphorum/read.php3?sortby=lastreply&direction=desc&num=11&id=40106&thread=32436

    or you can search the forum by "the bigger picture" (in quotes)
