Open File from Field
We have just installed a NAS drive to take the load of a server.
We have a seperate table in our database with an OLE field.
We have a script that inserts a link to the file into the OLE field.
Since installing the NAs the performance is really slow.
Adding a link into the OLE field used to be instant, now it take about 10-15 seconds.
Saving to the NAS is quick and if I put the file reference into windows run, it opens instantly.
I therefore wondered if it was possible to either:-
1) insert a string filewin:NAS:\folder\filename into the OLE field instead of using the insert file script step
2) Insert a the file path as a string into a standard field - then have a function to open a file from that string.
Would this require 3rd part software?
