Extracting images from content controls in Word RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey everyone,

    I have been struggling with this problem for some time, the scenario is:  I have an access application that tracks changes and issues...  Originally, this was a Word Document form that I tracked manually.  I have code to extract all of the form fields that incorporate text and create a record based on the information; however, I am struggling to control the image content control and am not sure how to go about this.  I have googled many times for this and still cannot figure out how to put it together.

    Currently, I have the image content control in the form, and on the access database side I have an ole object field.  I am willing to use attachments instead of ole objects but I want the import function to be super simple so anyone can use it when I am not here.  I have it import everything, then open a new form for the newly created record and you have to manually copy paste the images in, but I want to remove that last step.

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks in advance,
