Hai Dave,

I have a question, in the past you made in dbplugin a field named picture field, i know it does stored pictures in the dbf file it selfs. Now my question is, is it possible that you made also a field called PDF where you can stored PDF files inside dbf files like the field you did made for pictures. Maybe you can put it on your list....?

Hello Fred,

From the NBDB (Neobook Database) plug-in documentation,

Advanced Uses for Picture Fields
Even though NeoBookDB defines its blob field as a picture, you can use it to store just about any type of file. Replace the picture object in the above example with a media player object and you have an audio/video clip database. Replace the picture object with an article object and you have an text clipping database. Basically, any type of file can be stored in a picture field.

You should be able to store PDF files in NBDB picture fields.
