How do I determine what's in a container field

Post

OK, I started researching container fields. My current solution has multiple container fields. I am on a PC on Windows 7 Filemaker Pro 10 Adavanced, To fill the container fields I drug and dropped files onto the container fields. The orginal files on are a shared drive accessible by all users of the solution. My problem is that not all of them can access the files. I believe that the files in the containers are OLE objects. Is there a way to determine if that is correct? or a way to determine that I just have a link to the file location on the file server.

From what I have read, I probably would prefer to have the files in the containers inbedded in the containers not links. Any help is greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks.
