Attaching files to record in Filemaker 12
I am setting up a lessons learned database and (ironically) am looking for a lesson learned. That being is there a way, preferably a sexy/slick way to attach or append files to a record in the database so that when you call up an individual record, any files that might be useful are appended to that record.
A related table with one container field in each record is typically used for that purpose. You can insert either a copy of the file or a reference to a file into the container field. By using a related table, you can link an unlimited number of documents to a given "individual record".
