Moving referenced pictures from a folder to another


Recommended Posts

I am a beginner with FP...


I have built a 4.000 pictures database (the pictures are only referenced, not stored in the database). If I move the referenced container field image to a new folder it obviously disapears from the FM container field.


I would like to edit the link in order to be able to move the pictures from my local disk to my Lacie external disk. avoiding to re-attach the file by navigating to its location in the appropriate dialog, picture by picture...


I have made a test using ALIAS but it seems that the so called pointers bypass it.


Is there a way to access and then globally edit (with a script ?) the referenced external image path to allow for the images to reappear in the Filemaker container field?


Thanks for your help !
