Need Filemaker help

New to database creation. I am trying to create a database of scanned pdf files.

I am looking to add the pdf files to the Filemaker database as I would in iTunes . I can drag and drop the pdf files into iTunes and the original left in their original folders. iTunes doesn't allow the for as many categories as I need.

Is this possible in Filemaker or Bento?



thanks!

It's treated as an image file. Use a container field.

How many PDF files are we talking about here?

I ask, because I had a project exactly the same as you, and found a plug-in and server program that does it wonderfully! I've currently got 14,000+ PDF files scanned and archived in my FMPro solution using SuperContainer on my workstations and server. And it works exactly like you want to - drag and drop to add, single click to open the file after it's in FMPro.
