I am managing my scanned invoice PDFs with FileMaker Pro. I scan each invoice to a folder called APInvoices. I have the setting saved on my scanner. A few times during the week I import the content of the folder into container fields, creating new records for each. After the import I move the PDFs to a folder called \SCANNED which is under \APInvoices.
My problem is that since I import the PDFs into the file, it is getting large. But my understanding is that if I imported the reference to the PDFs, I could not change their location, i.e. moved to \SCANNED. But if I do not move, then won't they get scanned each time? I am so confused.
On a positive note, I have been doing this for about three months, and it has made my work so much better since I can see the invoices without going to the fileroom. I have a script to export field content and create email. Saved me several times. I just need to resolve the file size issue.
What am I missing?
