Media linked to sources

Post by Wilfreda99 » 06 Apr 2021 15:11

I've been sorting through files and have piles of paper source records. Before I chuck them I would like to check that I have the digital equivalent attached to the relevant source. I have added a column 'other' but cannot work out which is the relevant data expression there are so many to choose from - ie the ref as displayed in the picture: BARDELL Ann par bap 1803.
I have several where there is more than one media record, presumably that would add to the complexity. However I could sort through those manually if required, some of them look to be duplicates anyway.
I tried doing a query but the same problem presented.
Thanks in anticipation

Do you see that the field you want to display is called 'Media Record'.
When you click <<Insert Data Ref... choose the entry Media Record> that matches the name of the field.
That gives you %SOUR.OBJE[1]>% which is the 1st Media Record.

To list the 2nd Media Record, repeat the process but manually change the index [1] to [2]

In a Source type Query the Column tab Fields on the left will offer the same option.
The advantage of a Query is the entry is a clickable link that will open and display the Media Record image.

Brilliant, many thanks for both suggestions. I'll probably use the query version as it gives me the link.
No excuse not to get cracking now! :D
