Have you looked at 'Importing a folder of files all at once' in Help?
I wrote a longer post, but the (dumb) forum engine lost it (as I was not "signed in"). Shortly. To get a list of files via drag-n-drop you can use the Troi File plug-in. It's the only one I've heard can do this.
Otherwise, on a Mac you could use an AppleScript drag-aware applet. But that is external to FileMaker, so would only work for the current record (visible). You cannot put a functional AppleScript applet file within FileMaker itself. You could "list folder" from a button running AppleScript from a FileMaker layout. But that's not "drag-n-drop".
There are other plug-ins which can "list folder" of files. MooPlug (free, Windows-only); 360Works' ScriptMaster (free, cross-platform, Java-based).
Thank you folks.
Yeah i heard about Troi File plug-in.. i might try it this week.. not totally sure how this will works out with our database... but i'll give it a shot.
My only concern is about the plug-in VS the FM version.. we are kinda using an old version of it..
Thank you again guys. Lemme know if by any chance you find more informations about this subject!

There's a known issue long ago reported to the Right Now programmers where this forum may mysteriously sign you out without any warning. If this takes place after you open a thread but before you click the button to post your comment, your comment is lost.
I've been able to avoid this problem by always signing out and back in when I first access the forum.
There's also a known issue that seems to be connected with the spell checker that can lose your comments. I recommend copying your entire post to the clipboard before you try the spell checker so you can paste you comment back into a new Post A Answer box without having to retype.
Both precautions are a nuisance, but much less frustrating than having to retype a long comment.
