Link to doc files & scanned documents

Dear Everyone,

I am new to NEO4J and reading as much as possible. I have been searching for information about linking to external files such as doc files. I am building a personal administration database with a Timeline tree and would like to have nodes with the main information of invoices, but also a link to the scanned document on disk. That way I can call it up via React via python to display (that is atleast 6-8 month away).

CAn someone point me in the direction of documentation explaining things about neo4j and linking to external files such as docx, jpg, etc.

Thank you in advance,
Tideon

Hi tideon

Neo4j has no binary data type.
So we use string properties by assigning locations such as "files:///dir/filename.jpeg" or "https://somedomain...".
