kmoreau893 Posted February 24, 2005 Share Posted February 24, 2005 I'm trying to do something very simple (I believe with FM Pro 7 on the Mac) and I think I need containers. I've inserted images into containers manually, but I'd like FM to do it 'on the fly'. I have a directory of 'tif' files at the same level as the current filemaker pro database file. (I could easily convert these all the jpgs or PICTs if necessary) The names of the files match a field called 'product_id' in the filemaker database, with a ".tif" or optionally ".jpg" at the end. Example a value in product_id might be "sample" and there is a corresponding image file called "sample.jpg" in the relative path path ../catalog/images/ I would like to simply have filemaker reference these files by using the value in the "product_id" field, concatenate it to "sample.jpg" or such, and show that picture. Something akin to relative links in web pages. Is something like this simple in FM? Thanks for any advice. -Keith Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
