Title

Container Field Calc Issue

Post

     Hi,

     I've set up my DB to display images by going to a folder on the desktop and matching by a unique value in my DB plus ".jpg". The calculation looks like this...

          /*MAC OS X*/
          "imagemac:" & Get ( DesktopPath ) & "/DB_Images/" & unique value & ".jpg"
      
     In the past it has worked fine on multiple computers running multiple mac operating systems as long as the folder "DB_Images" lives on the desktop of the client computer, however, this time around I'm finding that it will only work on either mine or my colleagues computers and we're running the same OS. If I change the calculation to look like this (no "/" before "DB_Images"...
      
             /*MAC OS X*/
               "imagemac:" & Get ( DesktopPath ) & "DB_Images/" & unique value & ".jpg"
           
          ...then it works for her, but not for her, and if I leave the "/" it works for me, but not for her.

     We are both running mountain lion Mac OSX 10.8.5.

     Can anyone help? Thanks!

     Robbie
