Has anyone ever embedded an image using an expanded URL? I was quite sure if there was an APIcall function that would allow it to display anything other than a table.

If you want to display an image which is displayed on a record as a file attachment, try this as  formula text field with HTML enabled.






"<img src=" & URLRoot() & "up/" & [_DBID_Table name goes here] & "/a/r" & [Record ID#] & "/e10/v0"

 &

"\" width=\"200\">")

 In the above example, the file attachment is stored in field ID# 10.  That is the "e10" reference.

I'll try that out. Would you happen to know if QuickBase allow Timelines to be embedded on an exact form or some format that would be printer friendly?

Sorry, I can't really help you with the native Exact Firms product.. Most of my clients prefer to use the Add on from Juiced called Exact Forms plus as it generates a real PDF or Word file attachment.
