I'm just starting out here, and need to be able to attach documents (signed contracts, for example), to a record. Is that possible?
Yes, look into container fields (FileMaker Pro 15 Help). There are a number of different configuration options that you can use to configure it to your needs.
And, if you want a REALLY deep analysis of all the options you have at your fingertips with container fields, I think that one of the best documents on this is the FileMaker Training Series Advanced Guide (Module 2, Lesson 7). They spend approximately 16 pages discussing container fields in depth. modem
