Upgrading basic image upload --> KFM File Manager upload

I'm at a loss here. I have Insert and Update pages created from DataAssist that work perfectly with the basic Digital File Pro image upload functionality implemented. However, I needed to switch them to the KFM File Manager version because I need the cropping feature for the client to use.

I switched out the image upload form fields to KFM, but I'm not able to get the image file name to insert into the database. I'm assuming I don't need the upload server behavior anymore, just the insert behavior. Doesn't KFM replace the upload behavior all together.

This site also has Security Assist and PowerCMS Builder installed. I'm not sure if its a SA issue... I can't access the security rules within the File Manager dialog - a dialog appears telling me I have to go through the Admin section or something like that. Sorry, I don't have files with me at the moment to post any code or screenshots.

I know I'm not providing much info here, but if someone can at least give me more detailed instructions for swapping out the upload form fields, that would be helpful. Thanks.

in the form, the file manager is standard text box, unlike the file upload behavior which uses a file field.

in design view, select the File Manager and make note of the name of the text box in the Property Inspector.

in the insert record behavior, bind the image column to the file manager text box.
