Referencing uploaded files?

Question asked by webink on Sep 5, 2012

Is it possible for Filemaker to reference cell data in an Excel document a user would upload?

I'm running Filemaker Pro Adv 11 as client and Filemaker Server 11 as host if that matters.


Basically I want our users to upload excel documents that contain sales data from our POS system and I want to have Filemaker be the data aggregate and do some calculations with the data in those spreadsheets. I was thinking about importing the data, but I would still need access to the original file. Any good ideas on an approach to doing this?
