What method did you use to insert them?
What optimization on the field did you select?
If you use Insert File with the "Store a reference" option enabled, and the field is NOT optimized for interactive content, you can doubled click the container to open the file.
With any of those details different, double click doesn't work, but you can use export field contents to export and open the file--which can be scripted so that all you do is click a button to open and view the file.
thank you - you are magic. i selected "store as reference" option and did NOT optimize the field for interactive content - it works :). Now when I select it with a double click, it works. Thank you soooo much.
PhilMod: In your July 25, 2012 response, what would the script be? I csnnot click on my button once and have the file open for view without the extra step of downloading the file first. Here si my script:
Set Error Capture [On]
Export Field Contents [File::Attachment | Container]
When I click on the button with the above script, I get the "Export Field to File" window to open but then I need to find a folder to save the file even though I have the "Automatically open file" checkbox checked. I would like to ideally avoid this interim window if at all possible and just have the document in the container field open.
