    Hi Builders, 

    Hope you can help me out with this one, what I want to know is, Is there any way to post a link within the homepage of a table? So that way they can download an static file, I mean they click on the table and once they open it there must be something a button or a link, and from there they click on it and that will redirect them or automatically download this 'static file' persay which is basically a manual for the use of the table itself.

    Thank you so much for your help,

    Regards.

    Israel.

    You can make a formula URL field n rthe table with the file attachment with this formula

    URLRoot() & "up/" & Dbid() & "/a/r" & [Record ID#] & "/e99/v0"

    change the 99 to the field ID of your file attachment 

    The link text blank in order to expose the code.

    Test that it works by clicking the link

    copy the code to your clipboard

    Make a dashboard button "URL" and paste in that code.
