The button insert object does not specify in what field I need to insert the object. So it works fine if I have 1 button and 1 container field, but how can I do it if I have 2?


I want to have in my presentation

BUTTON 1 ---- FIELD1(CONTAINER)
BUTTON 2 ---- FIELD2(CONTAINER)

and when someone press the button1 allows him to insert and object in field1, and same with button2 and field2

you need to activate the proper field first with the "go to field" command in your "insert object" script or simply use the contextual menu 'insert object" by right clicking in the field.

ok, but, I need to do this without any external help. So I need a button than when you press it, it ask you for a file to enclose in the container. If the client has to select 1st the field that will hold the file it wont work.

that's roughly what "go to field" does, it activates the given field and the import action will apply to the current field
