      No longer opens link-field to Word/PDF files (MacOS FMPro 9)

      Post

      I just installed FM Pro 9 on a MacOS (10.6) system and then transfered its database from its original FM Pro 9 for Windows system. The problem is that the database field that contains links to either Word or PDF documents no longer opens them; instead, it tries to open them on a web browser.

      I tried to change the original script line from the relevant script:

      Open URL [No Dialog; Candidates::CV File Path]

      to:

      Open URL [No Dialog;"file://Candidates::CV File Path"]

      Now, although it stopped trying the web browser, it opens a file selector dialog box instead of directly opening the file (since it does have its full file path).

       

      Any idea how to get the MacOS version to intrepret this script line as it does in the Windows FM Pro version?

       

      Thank you in advance,
