  1. Does your database solution allow attachments? When our pack slips and invoices come, in relation to the purchase order, we scan and save them. We would like to attach them to the purchase order in a data base of purchase orders.?

The sample database has only three database fields: Title (title of the group of documents), Date (entry date), Notes (notes about group of documents). I will add a new field that will allow me to store links to documents (attachments).
