Creating bound and unbound object frames
Creating bound and unbound object frames
A bound object frame is used to display an OLE Object data
type. These data types allow you store objects such as
spreadsheets, word documents, or images in your database. OLE
Object data types were one of the first data types in Access for
storing objects such as images. Access also supports a newer
Attachment data type for storing similar documents, which has
the advantage of storing multiple documents on each record.
An unbound object frame can contain an embedded object
(held on the form), or it can be linked to an object held in
another location external to Access.

TIP You can also drag an OLE Object data type field onto the
form from the Field List pane. It will then automatically be
displayed using the bound object frame.
