    How do I get an Image, which is currently a field in a form as a "file attachment", to appear as a much smaller version on a list report pertaining to that table?

    You can use this code to capture the URL of the object in the file attachment field::

    Below is a URL field. Call it [Company Logo URL]

    URLRoot() & "up/" & Dbid() & "/a/r" & [Record ID#] & "/e6/v0/" & [Image]

    [image] is the file attachment field.

    ===

    Then....

    Create a formula text field. Call it [Company Logo]

    "<img src='" &[Company Logo URL]& "' width='148px' alt='"&[text field with text]&"' title='"&[text field with text]&"'>"

    Put [Company Logo] in your report.

    Pricilla,

    I should have pointed out that the "6" in the code for [Company Logo URL] is the Field ID of the [Image] file attachment field. You'd probably need to edit that accordingly for your needs. Sorry about that oversight.

    Thanks Chris... if I do it this way, will the image in the [Company Logo] automatically be updates if new images are added?

    Yes, it will capture the latest update.

    Or you can just go straight to the formula text field for the image, and use something like this:

    "<img height=\"80\" src=\"" & URLRoot() & "up/" & Dbid () & "/a/r" & [Record ID#] & "/e41/v0\" />"

    changing the "41" to the field ID of your file attachment field.

    Hi Matthew, this worked out perfectly. However, if I update the [image] field the new field which we called [display image] does not update with the current image. Is there something that can be done automatically or manually every time a new image is uploaded so that it can be reflected in the main table page?

    So QuickBase and Browsers seem to have a caching issue when files are updated.

    If you upload a new file and you are testing it in your same browser session, you will want to clear your cache / history.  Then re-view the image.

    odd I know...

    Also, you can turn off the keeping of revisions in the file attachment field. That will usually prevent this issue as well.
