Container Open Storage File Paths

After reading the 51 page PDF on FM13 in-depth details of container fields, I am still confused about an issue regarding file paths for external storage of container fields.


Assume a table with a container field that is set for open storage with a default storage path, and a field for the user to mark or flag the record.


What I want to do is move the files associated with each container field of the user flagged records, and move only those, to a new directory as specified by the user. The new path would be a calculation based on input from the user (i.e., user enters a new or existing folder name).


My question is: Does each container record have independent file path information? The way I read it is yes, that each container field in each record can contain a unique and different path to the contents for the container for that record.


Is this correct?
