Hi

I have a document database that I want to be able to by pressing a button

locate a document by browsing and when I select it the document link is then saved to the record. Then from that point I can then simply click on a button to open the file. I have previously manually added the document

location, but would like to know if there is a way I can select it within

FileMaker and then have its link then recorded.

I am using FMP 4.1 (PC)

Thanks

Greg

I have done a similar thing using the Windows Scripting host and FMPro database.

I read the file name to a text file then import the file name into an associated field.

Then I create a calculation field which turns it into a URL for FTP file transfers.

This works well for us as we use PDF documents for archiving technical specs.

Hope this might help
