Can I Place 1 File in 2 Folders in Sharepoint

By Stevens310 ·
I have a client that does a bunch of banner ads for sponsors. I am moving them to Sharepoint and need to find a better way to organize their current file organization. Currently, the have have client folders and sub folders of art and logos, etc. When a new banner needs to be created, they create a folder for 'banner01' and copy all of the art files into it from the different client folders. When the next banner needs to be created, they create a 'banner02' folder and copy art files to it... you get the point. They have duplicates of JPG's and EPS files in the double digits.
Is there a way to organize a Sharepoint library to store just one copy of the JPG and EPS files, but be organized so that they "appear" in the different 'bannerxx' folders? Like how GoogleDocs does Labels, maybe?

Try reposting this using the 'Ask a Question' button. The 'Discussion' forum is for matters of general discussion, not specific problems in search of a solution.

There are TR members who specifically seek out problems in need of a solution. Although there is some overlap between the two forums, you'll find more of those members in 'Questions' than here in 'Discussions'.

Additional benefits to the membership include:

1) The "Questions" forum provides for your feedback, by way of your being able to mark "helpful" responses as such. This does not necessarily mean that a given response contained the complete solution to your problem, but only that it served to guide you toward it. This is intended to serve as an aid to those who may in the future have a problem similar to yours, so that they might have a ready source of reference available, thereby perhaps obviating the need for them to repeat questions previously asked and answered.

2) The TR search function makes it difficult to find a particular "Discussion" or "Question" if it has not had a recent post; the two types get mingled in the listings. By keeping each type in their respective forums, it is easier for all to find what they are looking for.
