Thank you
Hi mikeoe2003,

Create a form with the controls shown in the below mentioned image:


Create a Database with the name Databasemikeoe2003PictureApplication.mdb (see the image below for the design of the Database):


Paste the below mentioned code in the Click event of ButtonSelect:

Dim cnn As New OleDb.OleDbConnection
cnn = New OleDb.OleDbConnection
cnn.ConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=Databasemikeoe2003PictureApplication.mdb;"

If cnn.State = ConnectionState.Open Then
End If
Dim da As New OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter("SELECT * FROM Tablemikeoe2003PictureApplication WHERE Id = " & TextBoxPictureID.Text, cnn)
Dim dt As New DataTable
Me.TextBoxPictureFilePath.Text = dt.Rows(0).Item("PicturePath")

PictureBox1.Image = System.Drawing.Bitmap.FromFile(TextBoxPictureFilePath.Text)

Run the application and check for the results.

Do reply with results.

Thank you, Zohaib R 5
