Hi, I have a migration which creates several records along with the table. eg Forum.create :title => "General Discussion", :description => "General Chit-Chat" But I'd like to create a record which accepts an uploaded file, such as a jpeg. Is it possible to automate this using the above technique? Thanks

Do you use an after_save callback to write the file into your file storage directory? Could you modify your callback to accept a filename from somewhere else in the filesystem and have it simply copy that file to your file storage directory? --wpd

It is probably best for you to handle this via a load script or a rake task. As to the file upload, if you are using a plugin like attachment_fu, then you are all set. Take a look at the plugin tests directory to see how those simulate the upload of files and create the uploaded files either in the db or in the path you specified in your models.
