Title

PHOTOS, PICS to load from a file folder to FileMaker

Post

Inventory program, I would like to show a photo of the item in the inventory file, But!, I don't want the file size of the photo to increase the size of the database. I would like for my filemaker record to Point to the photo on a drive and show it in the container file.

Database: INVCON

    Table: Item_Master ( where the information regarding inventory items is stored, everything except Inventory Qty)

This is where I would like the photo to relate to the file usine the (PartNumber) field

The photos are saved in a JPG format on another drive using the (PartNumber) as the file name. Ex:  12345.jpg

here's a trick!, there are as many as 4 photos (12345_s1.jpg, 12345_s2.jpg, 12345_s3.jpg) different views

Where do I start?
