I want to create a FM Database-slash-library of documents. I have a lot of research material I keep on my Harddrive, and it would be nice if there were a way to organize and reference it quickly. I would like to create a container (or something) that linked right to a MS Word 2001 Document. I don't need FM 5.5 to open it for me, just to point out where it is on the Hard Drive, and open it up. Can this be done, and how can it be done?

If you drop an object or a link to an object into a container field, FM then knows where it is. The problem is then if someone moves or renames the word file, FM will no longer be able to find it. This shouldn’t however be a problem on a neatly organized system. I usually find that people who have problems with this are not organizing their hard drive too well. If you use a file server, then you should have no problems at all.
