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.
