Sidekick 95 cardfile

Sidekick 95 cardfile

I've modified cardfile in Sidekick 95 to use as a catalog of my wife's stamp collection. I've got jpeg pictures of the individual stamps. Is there any way to link the picture of each stamp with the card for the stamp?

RE: Sidekick 95 cardfile

Dear speciald,
First of all name all the stamps without any spaces in their names and thn save them in any folder as in C:\Windows\Desktop\StampCollection
and then if you put in a Field called Picture the entire path as in
then all you need to do is double-click on that field to select the entire path
then Ctrl+C will copy it to the clipboard and
WinKey+R will open the run dialog and Ctrl+V will enter the path and then press Enter
and the picture will open.
Just remember to install a very quick graphics program like Irfanview and set it as the DEFAULT program for .jpgs or whatever file type you use.
You will get used to the procedure in no time!
