Getbackendpathshort and photographs borked with Access 2016. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I had developed a database with access about five years ago and everything worked fine until Access 2016 came out. I used to recall in form fields certain images linked to my products with the following string:

    =IIf([Linkimg] Is Null;getBackendPathshort() & "foto\" & [ID] & ".jpg";getBackendPathshort() & "foto\" & [LinkImg])

    Database works like this:

    I have a folder where images of my products are stored. Every item had an image that went by the name of it's [ID] Field. So Object "32" would for example go as 32.jpg. 

    Everything works still fine like the image fields in masks and reports. The problem IS whenever I want to print a report. 

    If I go to the "Print preview", suddently every image that is called with that string do not show. Whenever I print, the page comes blank where the image is. It has always worked fine in previous Access versions.

    Any clue?

  • That same KB article should apply, although I believe the updates for Office 365 are automatic.

    Look under the 'More Information' header at the URL I posted for steps to determine your update settings.

    Just a note - that fix was just released yesterday, so it's possible that your Office 365 has not been updated yet.

  • Make sure you have the latest updates installed.  Access 2016 came with an 'image bug', which to my understanding has been fixed. 

    Edit:

  • I'm using Office 365, is there also a link for that version? 

    Thanks by the way.

  • I just have done the update via the updater inside Office 365 and it looks like the problem is still there.

  • Just FYI, the update just appeared for me in Office 365 a couple days ago (no action needed on my part) - so hopefully you are seeing your images now too.
