ms-access How to troubleshoot Access crashes Remove "OLE Object" fields


If you have images or other data stored in Access itself as OLE Objects, then you should find a better approach. When the OLE data is stored, it is stored according to the software (and version of software) on the computer storing it. When another computer goes to display that OLE Object data on the form, but doesn't have the exact software / version installed - quite often this results in an application crash.

If you are storing image data, then a better approach is to store the filename, and instead save the images to a standard location. Newer versions of access have the native controls to make this the way to go.
