change path reference of picture used in layout?
FM Pro 10 Adv Mac ... is there a way to change/edit the file path to a picture used in a layout, when the picture is stored as a reference?
This works for me in windows and I see no reason why it won't work for you on a Mac:
Set Variable [$Path ; Value: YourTable::YourContainerField]
#Edit the path in the next line
Set Field [YourTable::YourContainerField ; <expression modifying $Path to point to a different filename>]
There are many possible variations on this method depending on where you are storing your different picture files.
Additional suggestion: You can use Set Field [YourTable::YourTextFIeld ; YourTable::YourContainerField] to see what get's stored in the container when you store by reference--just be sure to size your field to display multiple lines of text.

I assumed that from the "by reference" statement. If not, he should! :smileywink:
