Filepath for all users for picture insertion

Question asked by FilmUser on Oct 7, 2015

This is related to a question I had several days ago, but a different question.

 

I have container field for which there will be only a small number of pictures to be inserted (jpgs), used repeatedly for different records, but inserted by many users (a simple illustration image, selected and inserted within a script based on the value in a number field). If it matters, the container field is defined to "Store container data externally".

The desired workflow is for the user to enter a value from a drop down list into the number field (1 - 5), which fires a script inserting the correct choice of images into the container field.

When developing the script, I set a path on my own HD to a folder with the images. All works well.

My company has a common access web based file storage which I tried to use in setting the path, for a common access point for all users, but I can't get the script step, "Insert Picture" to accept any variation of the urls I tried.

I could place a folder containing the images on each of the user's HD, in a common location for each computer, but don't know how to direct the script to this place for any given user.

I'm familiar with the Get (DesktopPath) function and have used it for importing and exporting to files, so I tried using it with the images on my desktop, adding the file name to the path as I have done with the import script, but it doesn't work.

Can anyone help with this?
