    Can you set Filemaker to look in a specific folder when importing pics e.g.?

    tony.dhoop@telenet.be

      For an "import_picture" script in a complaint-database, the picture needs to be retreived from a path on the server.

       

      This path will be variable ; so upon each import different.

       

      Now the user has to start the import script and then browse to the desired folder.

      Can I have filemaker open the correct folder, so that the user does not has to navigate to that folder manually?

       

      So basically, how can I have Filemaker open a specific folder (defined by the claim number), so the user only has to select the picture?

       

      The "insert file" command does not work, since there is a FILEname required... I can only offer a folder name (path), not a file.

       

      thanks
