File Missing Questions and fix Please, how do I find a missing image file when I get a <File Missing> message in File Maker Pro Advanced 17, thanks Tim
How do you have your container field setup? Is it meant to contain information externally? If so, the question is, did you change the name or location of your databases? If so, that can explain why the File is missing. You would want to change the file name back to what it was originally or put it back in it's original location. Or just change the Folder, that containers your container files, name or location as well. Just something to look at.

What storage and insertion options did you set up?
If this was inserted with the "store a reference" option, this message means exactly what it says, that the file is no longer at the location with the same file name that was correct at the time it was inserted. ("By reference") means that the file path to the actual file is inserted into the container field.
If you used external storage and did not specify "store a reference", then something has happened to either your FileMaker file or to the copy of your file stored at the external storage location. (If you move your solution file, or say download a copy off the server, it can lose the ability to find the file in the external storage folder.)
Thanks, I went to File, Manage Containers and I was set up for temporary and not permanent and that brought back the image, thanks, it sparked the right place to look, Tim
