Import (read) document file names from an external folder
Mac OSX 10.7.2
Filemaker Pro Advanced 12.0v1
Ok, here goes...
I have a folder only for (User) Manuals. These could be for software, appliances, hardware, etc.
I want to be able to use FMP to choose a manual and be able to display it for viewing. (Most are in PDF format, some in RTF, but if need be, I can convert the latter to PDF.)
I saw the tutorial for viewing PDFs, etc., but having trouble finding how to access the folder and pull in the names of all the contents (files).
- Can FMP list all the file names within that folder, which is dynamic as I may add more to the folder, or delete some as we no longer need them?
- If so, how to handle this?
