Transparency and Images - Access 2003 Forms

Hi Folks,

Can any one help with a solution to enabling the use of images of circles 
with transpaernet backgrounds to be displayed correctly. I am using files in 
a BMP format that have a transparent background but when they display in the 
form the image has a 'white' square area where it is supposed to be 
transparent.

Any assistance is appreciated.

Regards,

You could use a gif and set the background to transparent.

Transparent.zip is a database containing functions to allow for the 
conversion of Bitmap, Gif, Jpeg, Enhanced Metafile and Metafile to an 
Enhanced Metafile format supporting Transparent backgrounds.

[Outlook 2007] Image resize limited to 66 ratio in HTML
Hello, it seems Outlook 2007 has a weird behavior rendering images in the following circumstances: Having a one-black-pixel gif, we've used it to render borders, as Outlook 2007 doesn't render backgrounds. So we had that kind of code: <img src=3D"http://blabla.com/img/pix.gif" width=3D"140" height=3D"1"/> or <img src=3D"http://blabla.com/img/pix.gif" width=3D"1" height=3D"100"/> For no reason, Outlook rendered each image width or height greater than 66 to 66, breaking the whole page rendering.

Attachment duplicate/overwrite problem in 2003

He wishes to send the attachments to someone else, so he creates a new message, then copies and pastes file1 and file2 from the old message to the new one and sends it out.
