I assume that these are files are stored in container fields?
If so, you can set them to store by reference (file path) instead of a copy of the actual file. Be advised that if this is a networked database, you'll need to store the files on a shared drive that is mounted by all your users.
I do not understand what you mean - or where is the option? I looking in the options for containers?
If I want to drop in a large file how can it easily "be stored" and still reference it easliy?
Sorry I sure it is obvious but I don't get it.
I'm going to spell it out in more detail than you probably need, but it's better to do that than still leave you confused: :smileywink:
Open Manage | Database | Fields and enter the name of a new field, select "Container" as its field type and create it.
Enter layout mode
Add the field to a layout.
Enter browse mode
Right click the field and choose Insert File, or click it and choose the same option from the insert menu.
Select the file, select the "Store only a reference to the file" option at the bottom of the dialog and click Open.
You've now stored a reference to a file in a container field in your database. Double click the field to open the file with the appropriate application.
Thank you so much!
I know it was simple I just did not see it, thanks again.
