      IMAGES IN FM

      Post

      Hi guys, I'm new to the FileMaker program and have been building a database to archive all are work and i have included a thumbnail image area so we can see a preview of the selected job which are located on my computer as jpg. The database is being shared over the fileMaker network and the other users cant see the thumbnail image. Can you please help me find a solution to this problem.

          Apparently, this image was inserted with the store by reference option. If so other users will be unable to see the image unless they also have direct access to the folder where the image is stored and that location is mapped and mounted. (and if some users are Mac and others Windows, this gets complicated as Macs use a volume name and windows systems use a drive letter.)

              Say you inserted an image from:

              ServerVolume/ImagesFolder/ImageFileName

              All your users must have ServerVolume mounted and they must have access to ImagesFolder or they will be unable to see the image.
