HELP: Using JPEG in a container field ?s - 09-11-2006 , 11:58 AM
I am using Filemaker Pro 5.5v1 on a machine that has Windows XP Home Edition
(Full Edition not the upgrade)
I have a field named 'Picture' and is a container field and I was inserting
a picture into the field. I was checking the box to 'Store only As a
Reference to the File' to keep my database file from becoming so large.
Last count I had over 3200+ records.
I had all my JPEGS in a folder on my C drive.
Yesterday I created a new folder and moved certain JPEGS to the new folder.
I knew that by doing this the next time I started FMP that it would show
empty space in the field labeled 'Picture'.
I knew I would have to go to each record and do the initial process over to
update the reference.
I am still wanting to check the box 'Store only As a Reference to the File'
but once I do and select the proper JPEG file and select 'OK' it still
displays 'Could not drab picture file: XXXXXXX.jpg'
Why does this happen?
If I follow the same as above and don't choose the 'Store only As a
Reference to the File' to picture appears.
What is the problem?
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

check the file path .. it may still be referencing the old location.
