      Image imports

      Post

      Using filepro 7 here.  We are importing images into file maker pro 7 from Windows 7 os file folders...the filenames have the image format suffix ".jpg" attached when imported into file maker pro...is there a way to eliminate that suffix globally or are we faced with having to go into each record and delete ".JPG" from each file name?  thank you

          Use the Replace Field Contents option in the Records Menu and you can do a batch update of your data. This cannot be undone and could modify a very large number of records all in one go, so it's not a bad idea to make a back up copy of your file first.

          You can use the calculation with Replace Field Contents to remove the .jpg from this text:

          Left ( Yourtable::YourField ; Length ( YourTable::YourField ) - 4 )
