Title

Container Fields, Folder aliases

Post

Hello everyone,

 

I don't know if it's possible, but I want to put a folder alias into a container field, so I can easily refer to relevant (text or pdf etc) files for each client I have.  Bento does this.  Putting individual files into container fields is cumbersome and inefficient (I might as well use Finder), having a fixed button opening the one folder also means I might as well use Finder.

 

For those who are suffering from microsoft, Finder is part of Mac OSX.

 

I am running Snow leopard, on a MacBook 13" (Aluminium unibody).  Filmaker is the latest version, I've got it on trial before I buy.  I am new to Filemaker but have some idea of databases.
