Filepaths can be relative (a folder next to the database in the same folder, for instance)
OR absolute (Full) (Local or Remote) Hard Drive Name / FolderName -or- HDName / User / Desktop Folder / FolderName
There are FILE: FILEMAC: and FILEWIN: paths.

Title: Getting File Path from Containers
Post: Mac Lion FMP12.0
I want to get the text file path from a .jpg picture located on a network hard drive. A Container contains the .jpg file as reference. I need this filepath to be adjustable if the Database file is relocated or the hard drive path changes.
