Newbies smillerdad Posted February 25, 2002 Newbies Share Posted February 25, 2002 We have a database of "pictures," actually scanned documents to replace paper filing. We have been importing the full pictures instead of links (linking seemed too dangerous) and have reached the 2 gig maximum file size within one month. I am exploring finding from multiple files (to retrieve documents) but if that doesn't work out : 1. I will need to get the existing pictures out of the db to make the single file workable. How can I get the existing pictures out and establish "references" for them without re-doing a month's work? 2. Change the default in the import picture window to "store only a reference to the file." 3. If the refrences get lost, is there any way to re-establish many at the same time. For example, Quark Express needs links to pictures and if they get lost and I find one in a folder the program asks if I want to re-establisk links to others in that folder. This risk of losing everything is the reason I put the pictures in the db to start with. Any advise would be appreciated. The system works great but I'm stumped on how to continue to build it.
