Although many people often use Microsoft Access to store text information, you can add files to a database as well. Access makes this possible by defining a special attachment field that can hold complex data. After you add an attachment field to an Access table, you can import PDF files into any of the table's rows. You can then view them from within Access because they become part of your database. Launch Access and open one of your databases.

In the dialog box, choose the destination location in which you wish to save the PDF. Enter a name if necessary.

Save any changes to the file and close the parent program. Keep in mind that whenever you change an attached file, your changes are saved to the temporary Internet folder on your hard disk drive.

See the notes at the end of this section for more information about that folder. To save your changes permanently, return to Access and, in the Attachments dialog box, click OK.

When you open an attached file in its parent program for viewing or editing, Access places a temporary copy of the file in a temporary folder. If you change the file and save your changes from within the parent program, Access saves your changes to the temporary copy. When you return to Access and click OK to close the Attachments dialog box, Access prompts you to save the attached file again.

Click Yes to write the changed file to your database, or click No to leave the file untouched in your database. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options. The Settings dialog box appears. The folder path appears in the Temporary Internet Files folder section.

When you need to use attachments with a form or report, you use the attachment control.

The control renders image files automatically as you move among the records in a database. If you attach other types of files, such as documents or drawings, the attachment control displays the icon that corresponds to the file type. For example, you see the PowerPoint icon when you attach a presentation, and so on. The control also allows you to browse any attached files and open the Attachments dialog box.

If you open the dialog box from a form, you can add, remove, edit, and save attachments. If you open the dialog box from a report, you can only save attachments to your hard disk drive or a network location, because reports are read-only by design. The steps in the following sections explain how to add an image control to a form or report, and how to scroll through records, attach files, and view your attachments.

Remember that you can scroll through attachments only when a given record contains more than one attachment. The steps in this section explain how to add the attachment control to a form or report, and then bind the control to an Attachment field in an underlying table.

You follow the same steps when adding the attachment control to a form or a report. Before you start, remember that at least one of the tables in your database must have an attachment field.

For information on adding an attachment field, see Add an attachment field to a table earlier in this article. Because form and report design can be complex processes, the steps in these sections assume that you already have a database with at least one table and one form or report.

For information on creating tables, forms, or reports, see the following articles:. Create tables in a database.

Create a form by using the Form tool. Create a simple report.

In the Navigation Pane, right-click the form or report that you want to change and click Design View on the shortcut menu. The Field List pane appears and lists the fields in the table that provide the data for the form or report. The list denotes an attachment field by making it expandable that is, you can click the plus or minus sign next to the field.

The following figure shows a typical attachment field in the Field List pane. Access places an attachment control on your form and binds the control to the table field for you. As needed, right-click the control and click Properties to display the property sheet for the control. Set or change the control properties to match the rest of your form or report.

Save your changes, and then right-click the document tab and click either Form View or Report View to open the form or report for viewing. If the underlying field contains image files, the control renders those files. If the field contains another type of file, such as a Word document or PowerPoint presentation, the control displays the appropriate icon for that file type.

After you add an attachment control to a form, you can add, edit, remove, and save attached files directly from that form. When a record contains multiple attachments, you can also scroll through the attached files, which you cannot do when working with a table.

The person who designed the form may have made the form read-only. If that is the case, you can use the Attachments dialog box only to save attached files to your hard disk drive or a location on your network. Open the form that displays your attachments, and locate the record to which you want to attach a file.

The Mini toolbar appears: If you added the attachment control to the datasheet section of a split form, the Mini toolbar does not appear.

For more information about split forms, see the article Create a split form. Click the View Attachments button the paperclip icon to open the Attachments dialog box.

Use the Look in list to navigate to the file that you want to attach, and then click Open. The steps in this section apply to forms and reports. Click the Back left or Forward right arrows to scroll through the attached files. If you want to know the names of the files, click the View Attachments button to open the Attachments dialog box. The names of attached files appear in the Attachments list. The steps in this section apply to tables, forms, and reports. You can save either one or all of the files that are attached to a given record to locations on your hard disk drive or network.

To selectively save files, you need to do so one at a time. Open the table, form, or report that contains your attachments, and then open the Attachments dialog box. Open the Attachments dialog box from a table.
