      Attaching documents to a record

      Post

      Hello,

       

      I'm a beginner using FM9V3 and I could do with a bit of help.

       

      Is it possible to attach a document (word or excel) to a record? I'm creating a database which holds students records and the user asked me whether it could be possible to attach reports-type documents to a student record so that she can 1) see there is a document and 2) click on a icon which would then open the document.

       

      I thought I'd create a container field and that might do the trick. I can insert the icon of the file but I cannot click on it to open the file.

       

      Am I trying to do something that's not possible? Or am I doing it all wrong?

       

      Thank you very much for your help.
