I am new to the world of Filemaker development, with many questions. Could anybody comment on the possibility of attaching files (word document lets say) to a record in a filemaker database shared with the web companion. Also, is it possible to edit a record online to include an image file? This last feature seems to be possible offline, however the web companion version of my database will not allow pictures to be placed in their defined fields?

Thank you for any suggestions!

While it's not possible to directly attach a document to a FileMaker record, you could place the path to the document in a record. Once you have that, on a Mac, AppleScript could be used to open the document. On Windows, I hear that WinBatch can do similar things.

There is no known way to upload images into FMP container fields through the web with Web Companion.

Documents cannot be put into container fields, but *paths* to them can be kept in text fields and used to generate links that let web users download them.
