Paradox 7.0 - OLE link - increasing size

 Paradox 7.0 - OLE link - increasing size

I'm using Pdox 7.0 on Wndows 95.

The database is located on an NT4.0 server and one table contains an OLE
field used to create a link to pictures.

This field is visible on a form where the user can do an insert object.
The options are :
        "create from file" is selected
        a file name is filled in (*bmp file stored on another server)
        the "link" chekbox is checked
        the "display as icon" checkbox is unchecked

I thought that the difference between an embbeded object and a linked
object was that in case of link, the object was not really stored in the
client application.
It seems that I'm wrong.

The database size is increasing dramatically (+/- 600Mb for the Paradox .MB
file + the space needed for the original picture files (*bmp))

Afterward, the pictures are printed on Paradox reports.

Is it possible to solve that problem ?

Thanks

I've come across this too! Please let me know if you find a solution, & I'll do
the same.
