So, I looked at where you said and I think we have a disconnect. I am adding MAAAAAAAAS medical files, like 4k+. Each file is mapped to one patient record. I have already created the basic patient records. I have also already created the folder (based on their PID) and moved their respective file to the folder. Now I just need to create records in the documents table that point to the files for the individual patients.
I just tried to make a test pointer in the Documents table. I know the file is there, but it is not showing up. I just assume that the Documents table is the pointer to the appropriate files. I have attached a sample file. The record with the really long hash is the one that shows up in the files folders.

Apparently new users cannot attach files.
