Hi All,

I have a container field which i wish to add a 'thumbnail' image of a PDF and to be able to then open up the PDF with Acrobat Reader.

I have used a calculation value in the Container field to look to a text field i have.

The text field contains the path of the PDF but the result i get in my container field is 'The File cannot be Found: Stock.pdf'

The path im a using is:

imagewin:C:/Documents and Settings/Administrator/Desktop/ERP/Stock/Stock.pdf

So as far as i can see i am pointing directly to the PDF. The PDF resides on the same box as the PDF. Is the PDF too many folders deep?!

Is there something i am doing wrong here?

My PC is running XP Pro and i am on FMP8v3.

Thanks in advance.

Basically what im trying to get at here is:

Is it possible to view a PDF in a container field by a method of the container field 'getting' the PDF by means of a calculation. The calculation being the path to the pdf?
