      Attaching Scanned Item to Specific Record Numbers

      Post

      New to this program, and not even sure is this is possible to do.  If I am working on a specific record number, is there a way to open a scanning program, capture the images and have them automatically attach the PDF file to the specific record open on the screen?

      Thank you all in advance for your help.

          You would "attach" a scanned image by inserting a copy of the file or a reference to it into a container field--either in the current record or in a related record linked to the current record. Making this an automatic process, however, might not be a simple thing to do.

          There used to be a plug in for this type of thing. Don't know what version of FileMaker you have nor if such a plug in is still available and compatible with your version of Filemaker, but you might do a web search for Filemaker Plug ins and see what's currently available.
