      Container Field Reference Path Modification

      Post

      Hello All,

       

      FM newbie here. 

       

      I have an environment where FM Database of about 1,200 records is accessed by both Windows and Mac users. 

      I set up a container field that references a picture file on a local shared server. 

       

      Currently, on a Mac, the file path looks like below:

      file://server/images/suit1.jpg

      file://server/images/suit2jpg

      ....

      file://server/images/suit1200.jpg

       

      I'm trying to get the pictures for each record to appear on Windows platform.

       

      From doing a little research, I understand that there needs to be a Windows compatible path, as such:

      filewin://server/images/suit1.jpg

       

      Am I correct in assuming that the container field for each record must contain the following two lines of text?

      file://server/images/suitX.jpg

      filewin://server/images/suitX.jpg

       

      How do I replace the current Mac-only path with two lines of reference path?

      Find&Replace doesn't seem to work because there are 1200 different SKU names and paths.

       

      Any help would be appreciated.

       

      Thank you, in advance.
