Thanks - working with the mapped drive is working, all the permissions are fine. (I was just curious about the need to map and understand now - mapping is not a major inconvenience as one directory on the server was already being mapped for another software package.) All is well and I am quite happily uncorking bottles...  Smiley

In that case the problem is probably due to protection applied on your server. Make sure that the specific image folder allows read/write access from your PC. If all else fails, copy the images to a common folder on your PC.

The mapping is required because the image link is currently interpeted as a file link, not a url link.

Thanks, that does seem to work - just out of curiosity, why is the mapping necessary?

Hi Ilao

The image does not need to be on your local PC, but if it is not on a local drive, the reference must be via a mapped drive, so that it can be referred to as (for example) x:\folder\filename.jpg

Hello,

I am a new user trying to add images to records in my cellar database. The database is stored on a server and this works quite well. I see that if I try to add an image to a particular record, then in the CSV backup (and, I assume, in the .clr file) there is a link to the image on the server. However, the image doesn't appear when I pull up the record. The only way I seem to be able to get the image to appear is if it is on the local drive of my computer.

I'm not sure if I am doing this correctly and would appreciate your assistance. Thank you.
