Jason:

Yes, I read the section you quoted. But what still isn't clear to me is the part that says "to upload files, simply follow these steps, but instead of creating an image, simply create a link (a href=””) tag".

I do: Insert > Image > Data Sources, and then I select the appropriate field from the Record Set. I have tried inserting a href= at the beginning of the URL field, but it doesn't work. It is easy to create a link that opens the file folder and displays the links to its contents, but it doesn't open the file. It seems that my problem is very basic: how do I create a link that will use the stored Server File Name to look for the corresponding file in the folder?

I have no difficulty displaying Thumbs and Images, but the instruction "simply create a link (a href=””) tag" somehow isn't clear to me. Or, better said, I just don't know how to create the link in question.

Your attention to this matter will be highly appreciated.
