    Urgent: Image stored as OLE object in Access DB urgently needs conversion back to a .tif file


    Urgent!!!

    A multi-page OldImage.tif image file was stored in Access using its Insert
    OLE object menu option (not the link pointer), the image data was then transferred
    to SQL Server 2000

    Tried to use ADO stream and other I/O file methods to save the data from
    the database into a NewImage.tif file, although this NewImage.tif kept the
    correct size as of the original OldImage.tif file, but the NewImage.tif seems
    to have been corrupted, I just simply can't view any images out of it in
    any graphic applications.

    Do you know how to de-convert back the images(including all other image formats)
    saved in Access's Insert OLE object method in VB?

    Many thanks!

    Posting again isn't going to make anyone answer faster.

    Someone will answer if the know a solution. If they don't, they wont.

    Have you opened the .tif files up in a hex editor or diff program to see
    what is different between them (most likely something in the header
    portion)? That might give you a clue as to where the conversion is going
    wrong (ie. bytes being dropped/added).

    For the TIFF file format specification, you can look at www.wotsit.org

    Good Luck,
