I am going to insert a file. When the folder opens up, What i want is the filepath based on the text on the field i entered. Sorry my grammar i hope you understand.

This is the explanation.

The source of the data for this field is the client matter folder identified in the file path field. I want to be able to click on the field eltt, have a menu come up Cut, Copy,
Paste ... Insert file, and when I click on insert file it opens in the in the file path field and can insert a reference to the
the eletter template in that folder

Wow, cut and paste?

Sorry, I'm still unclear of your process. I see you are just starting out using FileMaker, so you might want to take a few courses, you probably discover that what you want to do can be accomplish using this such as  calculations, Scripts Open File, Open URL, etc. 

Have you read this article yet: Anatomy of a Good Topic
