      Inserting Images

      Post

      I'm brand new to the program, and creating a new database. I copied the layout from an existing database from the gallery I work at, but now it will not allow me to insert pictures into the picture box (when I try it reads that the script cannot be found). I have created a "relationship" between two tables, one of which contains the images, but still no images are showing up. Is that right what I did? Do I need to create a script, and how do I do this?

          What did you do just before you got that message?

          Did you copy both the related container field (::image) and the button just above it?

          Copying a button from one file to another does not also copy the script it performed.

          (The simplest way to add a picture to a container field is to click/tab into it and select Insert Picture from the Insert Menu. Developers often add a button for this purpose so that they can use a script to get the images all inserted with the same options specified for more consistent management of the inserted images.)

            Yes I did copy from another file. I followed the way you explained, however, I have about 200 files with images I need to insert into them, and it has duplicated the image I have inserted into every entry. Any suggestions?

              If you go to the layout for Matt Brower Images, how many records now exist in that table? 1? 200? or some other number?
