    Text File to Images

    gbrown007

      Hi guys,

       

      I'm very much a newbie to filemaker so please be gentle with me.

       

      I wrote a script for a 3D program that runs through all my files (+4,000) and renders out small thumbnail images (jpg). It also outputs a text file with details about the model and includes the path to each of the thumbnail images. I then import the text file into filemaker creating a catalog of all the models rendered. The problem I am having is that when I import the text file, the path to the jpgs (in my container object) just displays as text. How do I tell the container object to use that info to link in the jpg?

       

      I've seen a few posts that pose this question but haven't found one yet that walks through how to pull this off.
