Title

Container Filed Referencing External FIle (word doc)

Post

     Hello- I searched and couldn't find an answer. I also followed the help file without success. Any help would be much appreciated.

     Goal: Create a container file where I can drag various files such as word doc, xls files, etc that would be referenced and not copied within the DB. I need them to reference the current location of the file and not move/copy the original referenced file.

     Problem:  I setup a container field to reference the current location of the document(s) dragged into the container field. Is this possible? I tried a bunch of things and am just getting errors.

     Thanks in advance.
