      Multiple images related to a single record.

      Post

      I have a database of machinery and each machines has various pictures associated with it. I know I have to create a seperate related db of images but how do I import a whole folder of images and make sure they all get the same id as the machine they are related to?

          You can use the Import Records | Folder option to import all picture files in a given folder.

           

          Immediately after import, the found set for your table will consist of all the records you just created by the import.

           

          Use replace field contents to give all these records the ID value that links them to the correct parent record.

           

          Both Import Records and Replace Field Contents have multiple options, so it's a good idea to read up on them in Help and also to make a back up copy of your file just before you do this.
