image importing

Post

Hi

FMP 9 on Windows 7

I've got an old excel spreadsheet with a couple thousand records of slide photographs - each record has name, location etc, plus a file name/path for the relevant slide - as text.

how do i import this into a FM db to make the image appear in a container field on a form for each record?

the raw text field obviously won't display the image, and you can't 'store' a filename in a container field...

all help appreciated..
