Inserting a picture in a container field from a path in a text field

Post

Hello,

 

I'm trying to automate the insertion of a picture into a container field referencing the file path in a separate text field. I have tried the following:

 

Setting the image field as a calculation (with the result being a container), setting the calculation as: "image" & Image Path

(Image path being the text field with the location path for the image). This resulted in a message in the image field "This file not found"

 

I also tried setting the image field as a container, and setting it as a calculated result, with the same above calculation. This resulted in a jpg logo with the text of the filename below it, not the image itself.

 

I hope this description of my issue is clear, and some people out there have additional suggestions. By the way, I'm on a Mac OSX 10.5, using FMP 10 Adv.

 

Thanks,

Krista
