Relative to a known location.
Filemaker knows where the database is.
You could use a relative link starting with the enclosing folder of the database.
(this is true in many link structures, including webpages)
Get ( FilePath ) will give you the path to the current location of your file.
Get ( FileMakerPath ) will give the path to the filemaker application
Get ( DesktopPath ) will give you the path to the desktop
Get ( DocumentsPath ) will give you the path to the documets folder
With any of these, you can include the text in an expression to return a path to a location within the enclosing folder.
Well, I figured out the OpenURL syntax for a relative path
The file maker database is located in the same directory as the scans folder. I still cannot figure out how to do the same thing with the image: command. I tried this:
Both of which do not work.
PhilModJunk, I don't understand how your technique would work. Any chance you could write a sample? I know where all of my images are located and I know where the database is located.
Image location: F:\GIS\KKW\Data\ServiceCards\scans\0013704924.tif
Database location: F:\GIS\KKW\Data\ServiceCards\
Ther must be an easy wat to do this.
Thank you for the replies so far.
I don't know that they will. If you could locate the files in question inside one of the locations referenced by a Get Function, you can compute the path to one of those locations. If you must leave them where they are, I don't know that you can.
