Image locations #5383
I imported all of my data from a previous system into the internal database. I understand you can point to a generic picture for your ID's but we have a folder that contains all the users pictures based on login id. The idea is that now I have all the employee data I can print all the cards at once and have the software look to the folder based on user name and print the associated image.

For example:

\\Server\Employees_Images\JDoe.jpg
\\Server\Employees_Images\JDoe1.jpg
\\Server\Employees_Images\JDoe2.jpg

Is there a way to set the variable to look for a %username%.jpg if I added a hidden employee login ID field to card?

Thanks

Hi Rich,

Does one of the fields in the database relate to the image name ?
If so then yes you can link the photo up as you require, when you add a photo to the card design you can set the database column that contains the photo name.
You can then set the path for the photo and the extension in the settings below.

Now the photo should change to the correct image when you select different records from the database.

Let me know if you have any problems.
Craig
