Have you considered Web Viewer to view?
I've "copied" the file names in a folder and pasted into a text editor. Import as tab delimited (there should be one name on each "line", so only one field). But this was when I didn't want to actually import the images.
There are several other methods to get the list of files. This is quick and dirty for me even with a couple hundred images. Maybe the folder would let you copy all the names with 3000 files.
We got the same solution for an article image.
We have over 10.000 articles
We use article number.png for the pngfiles.
If you want/need the calculation in the container field, I can look it up for you tomorrow.
To open the file outside FileMaker we use a script.
But that's also possible.
Do you use an Mac or PC?
We're not using an index list because FileMaker is our way to search and view files, the index list we use is a listview ano a portal in FileMaker Pro and in Webdirect.
yes. OPEN outside FM. View/preview in Web Viewer (images). But use external path to the image.
I agree, we also used the external path, we didn't store the png files in FileMaker.
Perfect recommendation. Thanks for the tip...working great!
