      Storing a reference

      Post

      Hi - I have a container field in my database in which I am storing only references to files.  I have created a folder specifically for the purpose of holding all the original files that I will be referencing.  

       

      I would like to know if there is a way to add a shortcut to this folder to my database.

       

      Thanks!

          Thank you for your post.

           

          When you store a file as a reference, you can create a calculation field, resulting in text, that equals the container field name, and the full path will be listed in the calculation.

           

          Does this help?  If not, what do you want to accomplish with the path name?
