I created a database with tables and forms and entered a lot of data. Now I have to go in and modify the forms to insert a business logo. How do I do that?

Hello

Open your form in edit mode and then insert the image
menu --> insert --> Picture --> from file

First of all, I think I figured out how to open a form in edit mode --

Highlight the form. Then go to menu --> edit --> edit. Is this correct?

Then I did: menu --> insert --> Picture --> from file

It inserted a box with the name of the file, but not the image.

What am I doing wrong?

Hello

Maybe you have to set the image to view

first
menu --> tools --> option

In the popup

OpenOffice writer --> View --> Display --> Graphics and Objects

Thank you for your help. I didn't have the option to do

>menu --> tools --> option

>In the popup

>OpenOffice writer --> View --> Display --> Graphics and Objects

So I closed the Database and opened the Text Document. It also would not show the image. So I closed the Text Document and opened Drawing and finally it worked like it should have in the first place:

menu --> insert --> picture --> from file

I copied the picture and closed Drawing. Then I opened the Database, selected the form in edit mode and pasted the picture into the form. Seems like it shouldn't be so much work to do this. There has to be an easier way.

Anyway, thank you so much for pointing me in the right direction.
