Need help with what should be a simple database

It’s been a few years since I have build databases…  hoping to the best way to do this…


MAC OS 10.6.8     /    FM 10


The Database will only have  the following fields:



EMAIL ADDRESS       (Text Field)

NAME                                    (Text Field)

QUANTITY                        (Number Field)

SIZE                                    (Text Field)

DIMINSIONS                        (Text Field)

FILENAME                          (Container Field to hold a DXF File)


PURPOSE OF DATABASE: To be able to take a found set of records and email the above fields along with the dxf file(s) in one email .


The more I started looking at it… there seemed to be some barriers for what should be simple…


Thoughts? I am wondering if the .dxf file ( a line drawing outputted by a CAD software package) either can’t be stored in a container field (or) if it is to be grabbed externally, it may require some kind of script step.


Thanks for your help in advance…
