FM - Calculated Path for Container Field?
Posted on 2011-02-22
I'm trying to write a calc for a container field so that whatever record I'm on the container will show the appropriate document. I put the filewin path, but it just produced an shortcut icon (instead of showing the document) and when I clicked on the icon, a dialog box came up saying I didn't have the correct file path (yet I've used this file path in other situations). See attached.
Also, dragging and dropping doesn't seem to be the answer because: 1) we will have over 700 records, and 2) when you do so, the pdf file shows nicely, but it doesn't give an option to store only a reference to the file. I tried right-clicking, but this doesn't provide an option to store a reference either. I've written calc paths for pictures, etc. in a web portal easily; what's the procedure for Container fields?
