How to add an image from my cell phone to my database directly RRS feed

  • Question

  • I like to know how I can add a image into my database from an cell phone.

    For example I have a table with purchase recrods and I need to add a image of the bill and I do not want to do it manually.


    Me gustaría saber como importar una imagen directamente a mi base de datos de access, capturando desde el Teléfono celular conectado al PC.
    El Objetivo es agregar la foto de una factura a cada registro de compra, evitando la necesidad de primero tomar las foto, segundo descargarlas al pc, tercero renombrar las imagenes, cuarto subir manualmente y de una en una cada imagen  a cada registro

  • You would somehow need to sync your phone with a desktop computer, copy the pictures from the phone to a folder on the computer, then update the database with the path to that image.

  • Hello,

    There is no direct way to sync your db and mobile. We have to use another tool or software as a bridge. I think you could try to create PowerApps. It is a service for building and using custom business apps that connect to your data and work across the web and mobile - without the time and expense of custom software development.  Please visit What is PowerApps? and for more information.
