    GIF with transparent background

    I have prepared a GIF with a transparent background. Once I include this image on a form in MS Access 2003 the background turns up white. Tried anything to solve, but no success. Hope one of you can help me where things go wrong. Thanks in advance.

    What control are you using to display the GIF? It has been a while since I used a GIF, but I would look into using a different control. This is old but worked well. I used this in the past.

    The transparency of the gif is set to the BackColor property of the control, which is White by default. Change the BackColor to Transparent - the toolbar is the easiest way to go - and it shoud work.
