    Question Unanswered: Automating adding photo to new records

    I manage a staff database with photos on my company intranet.

    I want to be able to add a 'photo pending' image to my container field automically for each new record.

    This will be replaced by the real photo later on manually.

    The container field settings don't seem to allow for a default contents.

    Does any one know how I can do this.

    Many thanks

    Though I'm a newbie, I think that making 2 fields could be your solution.
    Graphic1 and Graphic2 where the last one is a containerfield.
    If Graphic1 = "" then Graphic1 = Graphic2
    Make a script that checks the content of Graphic1
    Or is this to simple ?

    Thanks for the tip. I think I have got it now.

    I have created a global container field with the image I want, and then redefined the photo field to auto-enter a calculation equaling the global field.
