Hi All,

I have posted on this topic before but I have not come to a solution.

I need to attach a PDF file

when on click, goto server location, the client must be able to brows for the file, not a fixed location

then insert pdf into container

Please could you give me a few guide lines as I have tried quite few few with no results

Hi Ocean West,

thank you for the reply, could you please explain a bit more on the BaseElements?

not sure what it is or how to implement it

Would I need to install it on all pc's running file maker or only the one we are doing the development on?

The Plugin: https://baseelementsplugin.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/115002990887-BaseElements-Plugin

The Function: https://baseelementsplugin.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/207324927-BE-FileSelect

You would install it on each machine which you can also do with putting the plugin (mac or pc) into container fields the use the Install Plugin script step to make sure the plugin is installed when the user starts the database on that computer for the first time.

Then your script on the button to insert file would run the function and then you'd get a path to the file where you can use that from a variable and then use the insert file script step.
