 Import Image Refs

I'm having a lot of trouble handling images in filemaker 3.04.

We scan photos into Photoshop and save them as PICTs or TIFFs, then we want
to save a reference to the file in our database.

Often what happens is the the dialog box comes up saying that it is
importing the image, and it does, then the dialog box returns, repeatedly,
until I cancel it manually. Then the container field displays a message
saying that it couldn't display the image.

Today, I imported a PICT (no problems) without specifying that it should
only be a reference to the file. So I went back and did that, as a result
it went into the endless loop that I've just described.

Has anyone else seen this sort of aberration ?

yours

No prizes for the newsgroup this time.

The answer was: the problem was caused by a corrupted layout.
The solution: make a new blank layout, copy all from the problem layout
and paste into the new layout. Ouch! It messes up any navigation scripts.
