Hi guys,

 

Been playing with this all day and am lost, very new to File Maker but want to learn, please advise me on what I have got wrong and thanks for any advise in advance.

 

I have imported data into a main table, key fields for this question are barcode and "Zone image - (question ID)".

 

each record has 6 different images that I am going to record data for. All images reside in one folder \\c...\images

 

The fields zone image..... contains the image file name, I have set these to containers.

 

I went into manage - containers and created base direction of file location

 

I then went into the field options and storage and under container ticked"store container data externally" relative to the base direction I created and then open storage and specified "Zone Image _ Q1_05"

 

Am I completely off the mark?
