Grabbing the URL from the selected file

Discussion created by ajayz on Nov 16, 2012



I have a database that need a quick way to build hyperlink to PDF files (training induction records) and I would like to be able to open a dialogue box and navigate to the file and when I click on the file it grabs the URL to populate the field that I started from to creat the hyperlink. I don't want to build a contain and dump the PDF files within it as I need the files saved in the current network location.


In MS Access I would just press ctrl+K in a formatted Hyperlink field and it would work, however i'm not sure how in filemaker or the best way.


Is there a way to do this? or has anyone go another solution.
