I have a filemaker file of records (Windows98), one field of which contains the pathname to a jpg file.

I would like to automate the importation of each jpg (preferably via its pathname in the above mentioned field) into a container field within the record.

Is there a way--script, plug-in (I've considered Troi's File plugin, but I think it deals with text only), or maybe an editor like Winbatch?

Any help would be appreciated--Aaron.

Use WinBatch, I have done similiar things. basically you will use WinBatch to feed the Filemaker Import Picture dialog box. Works pretty well, but needs alot of tweaking due to timing issues.
