    Talking Unanswered: Linking a file to a record

    This is a newbie question but I can't seem to figure out how to link a file to a record. I don't want the file to be embeded into the database, just the path.

    The final product would be a form where a user can go to a specific record and click on a button to get to the file through the path. Any suggestions?

    Store the full pathname in a column. Use the Shell() function in the button to launch the file (assuming that there is a file association for the file's type).

    You can create a hyperlink field in the table, and insert the file path.
