PAF & PDF files
Posted by: Richard Soash (ID *****5775) Date: September 27, 2011 at 05:49:31

I have thousands of sources files and pictures that I would like to attach to individuals. It seems to me that pdf files will be the most accessible long term while many of the other picture formats may be difficult to open in the future. I have had success attaching pdf files under the Multimedia button. Do you think this is a wise move?

Any thoughts on linking thousands of documents to individual records? I have spent years and $$$$ collecting these documents and want to save others from redoing the same research.
