Linking to a server folder

Recommended Posts

Right, I have a need to link to a folder on a server from a filemaker 6 database.

Basically I have a CRM database in Filemaker 6 and each customer has their own folder that contains word / excel docs etc. What I want to do is to be able to link to these folders by customer name.

eg: servercustomerfredbloggs

The first part would stay constant. (servercustomer) the customer name needs to be generated from the customer name field in the database!

Stuck as to how to get it to work!

This might only be possible in FMP 6 and eariler with a plugin like Troi File. It's most certainly possible with native features of FMP 7 and later.

Time to upgrade!
