3. Then click on the 'Control Palette' button on the taskbar

5. Go to Database Configuration application
6. Bring up INVENTORY object
7. Select the Relationship tab and add a New Row
8. Set up the values as follow

Relantionship -> IMGLIB
Child Object -> IMGLIB
Where Clause -> refobject='ITEM' and refobjectid in (select itemid from item where


9. Save it
10. Create a new Item, add an image and check this item in Inventory app.
