Thread: Scrap files
2001-06-22, 12:42 #1chris_otterGuest
Version Access 2000 SR1
I have pasted into an OLE field a number of EXE's. I thought it would be a goo place to store drivers etc. At first all is well, the Icon etc. is displayed in the OLE field and I add additional fields for search and information. The problem I get is that when I copy and paste them to a directory they become 'scrap' files. My questions are as follows
1 . How do I paste/copy them to a directory without them becoming scrap files.
2. What are scrp files and of what use are they.
PS when I maintained a similar system using Paradox I use a program command to read in and write out a binary file into a field.
Thanks for any help in advance.

Re: Scrap files
Rather than storing them in the database, store them in a folder on the hard drive or network. Then, set up a hyperlink data field in the database, and create hyperlinks to each file.
