Hi,

I'm a professional MS Access developer and found that Picture (OLE Object) controls don't work with Windows 11.  You can test it as follows:-

1. Open the ImagePasteBug.accdb database in MS Access

2. Open an image in MS Paint, select it all (Ctrl A), copy it (Ctrl C) and paste it into the database field (box).

3.  You should now see the image in the Access database, so it looks as though it has worked, but if you save it (click bar on the left of the form), exit the database and go back in again, it isn't there any more.

This procedure works in Windows versions prior to Windows 11 but doesn't work in Windows 11 (have tried it on multiple Windows 11 machines).

I've zipped the file up because it wouldn't accept the .accdb file.

All the best

Eric

Yes, that's right, I can confirm this bug!

Is there a way to fix this error?
PS: The same problem occurs with the BETA of Office / Access 2021 (latest version)!
