You might want to consider a content management system that does all this work for you and gives you the tools to link the images from your line-of-business applications rather than re-inventing all yourself.

I work for RJS Software which offers such a product, WebDocs.

Subject: datalink columns

We are planning on archiving a pdf copy of our invoices in the IFS. To link these files to the customer/invoice/etc. I am going to create a table with these values and the filename in the IFS. From my reading it seems like a datalink column is the way to do it. I have never used these and am going to start doing some testing. Has anyone done this and are there any gotchas? Or, is there a better way to do this than use datalinks?
