Hi.

I have a problem when I'm trying to make a script that opens pictures (in IE5) in a container field. What I do is that I open the picture in IE5, copy the url into a field that I name picture_1...picture_N, then I made another field c_url_picture_1, that adds "file://"&picture_1.

The script is then OpenURL(Fieldvalue:c_url_picture)

When I perform the script nothing happens.

What do I do wrong?

When I do this with "http://"&company_url, everything works fine.

Regards,

Reynir.

Iceland.

Container fields don't work that way. They are only accessible through the FMP client UNLESS you are web sharing the database through Web Companion in which case yes you can view a container field through the web browser, but the URL will be much more complicated -- it'll have to specify the database, layout, format file etc.

On a PC you might be able to open the contents of the container field in IE using the OLE (or whatever it's called) -- there is a specific script step for it.
