Similar to linking images locations to database. Is there a way to link folder to a row in a table.

For example, Suppose we have 3 tables as follows.

  1. Documents - DocID DocName
  2. DocumentVersion - Date DocID DocVersionName Remarks
  3. DocVersionFeedback - Date DocVersionName DocFeedbackID Remarks Doclink

    Where Doclink is link to folder where the documents is stored in computer.

Now when a record is entered in DocumentFeedback table can we do the following

  • First to create a folder suppose ( c:\Documents\DocName\DocVersionName\DocFeedbackID ).
  • Second open the folder so that the feedback file can be placed in the folder.

By doing this we can directly access the files in the folder from the LO(libreoffice) base.

is this possible in LO base. Please guide me.

Regards, Markus.
