We use RM 12 as a library catalogue and through a members only page on our website, our members have access to the databases that I publish using Web Publisher. In the past we stored all files on a separate server and linked to them, very cumbersome! The new attach a file feature is much better for us, but I have some questions.
By attaching a file, is the file embedded in the record so that when I publish the database, anyone can download the attachment? (I want this to happen.) The file doesn’t sit on my pc does it? We upload the databases onto a separate server, which has RM installed.
If (1) is true, is there a restriction on how many files you can attach in the database (eg not per record) and will the database grow in size? We upload around 20-30 PDFs a month, and I’m worried it will slow the database down or crash it.
Thanks for your response.
