Inserting Object via the Web?

You'd need to abstract the file from the database. Use a File Upload solution to get the file from the user (we offer WebStar File Upload with our accounts), then store the reference to the file (/path/filename.doc) in your Filemaker database.

To display the file, you'd then just build a link, adding the value from the reference field in the database to the end.

Hi, I'm designing a database in which users need to be able to submit deliverables (Word docs, PowerPoint slides, etc.) I know this functionality is present within the Filemaker software, but can you do it via the web? How does one Insert object into the filemaker database via the web? I want to grab a file from a user's hard drive and insert it into my database. Is this doable? Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
