    Storing files in the database




      I have a database where each record has 20 container fields, that i would like to insert .pdf files (each around 200kb). The problem with referencing the files is that the file paths change-plus the database is being used across Windos and Macs, which have different file paths.


      Can anyone see any issues with inserting the files into the database so that clicking the containers runs a script that exports and opens the file- my conern is that when the number of records reach into the hundreds, will the database become too clogged up with inserted files and will its performance become affected?



      Thanks All
