I have records with text and files. I want to delete the file when deleting the record, but I can't get it done. The record will delete, but not the file. Is there a tutorial for this or can someone help me out?

It is the same as updating records/file - but instead of update step, just use delete.

No idea how to do this after the tutorial you are pointing at. There are conditions, upload file steps and so on.

Similar how Jaques H describes it, I have a page with a list of files, after having been selected by clients. This works fine.
There is an option in a dynamic repeated table and a button which I would like to use to delete the file AND the database entry. Can I use the action file which I use for the query (list) of files or do I need to setup an extra one?

Hello Greta,
The logic is the same as in this video:
Instead of using delete folder, use delete file.

Oh, OK,
thanks. You really did a great job with this extension. The combined delete function for database AND file (even folder) is just first rank!
