Title

opening files stored in container fields

Post

When inserting a file (.pdf, .xls, .doc, .m4v, etc) into a container field, if I use the "Store only a reference to the file" option, I can double-click on the field and the file will open in the appropriate application. However, If I actually place the file into the container field (NOT using the "Store only a reference to the file" option), double-clicking does nothing.

Is this the way FileMaker Pro on the Mac is supposed to work? If not, what am I doing wrong?
