I downloaded a copy of the Handbook today, thinking it might be later, but it turned out to be the same 4.0 version. I'll scout around tomorrow. > The Base-Handbook conbtains a chapter for changing an internal > database to an external database. It is a part of the attachment. > That would have been very useful.

I'm currently checking the image files - it seems that only a small number are too big, but they are MUCH too big. After I'm sure I have that sorted, I'll go back to the Form creation. Just to clarify - I gather I need to add a field <Image> where I have at the moment only the text/URL field. I then try to set up the control for the image so that it reads the url and displays the image. Have I got that right? Test time, tomorrow.
