I did read your suggestion, but i'm a little bit slow on programming. (well I'm learning). In our company we already have an invertory list of different fresh water fish, what i wanted to do is to add a field in that table that we called inv.dbf that stores the path of an image of every fish, but i don't know how to store the path to an image in a table this table. After storing the path i would like to open it with a form, showing the image. For example let say that where i keep the images of all the fishes is on c:\fish\images and then the different names of the bmps, how can i store this path the table and later retrieve this image in a form.

I'm sorry to bug a lot, you might be thinking " this kid should go to school"

Thanks

The problem here is that you are dealing with a VFP back end and that means that you have a 2Gig file size limit for tables. You can eat 2 gigs surprisingly quickly storing images in a table. If you are working on a SQL backend, then yes, I would suggest a Blob field, but in a VFP back end?
