FMP Import Experts,

Does anyone know why importing the contents of a container field isn't allowed via ODBC? Is it because there is no supported SQL datatype suitable for getting the data in there? I guess that makes sense...

I'd just like to be able to import a bitmap by giving FMP the *.BMP filename. Would it be possible to write a FMP script to do this? Someting like this:

All of the bitmaps are on the PC and there is a container field in the FMP database named "bitmap". A FMP script runs and pulls the bitmaps into the bitmap container field for each record.

Sound possible?

How about writing the name of the BMP file into a text field off of the layout somewhere and then running a script that uses these names to import the graphics?

Does FMP allow container fields to be filled using the scripting language?
