PDF in container field - searchable by find function?
I would like to manage invoices by Filemaker. I have created a form with some fields, invoice number, customer name, and so on.
In addition, I have a container field where I drag my scanned and OCR ed PDF file into, so the PDF is stored inside the Filemaker database. I can view it, select text, and copy this text out of the pdf.
Is it possible to include the contents of the searchable PDF into the results of the search function within Filemaker? I would like to find information which is not in the Fields but only inside the PDF.
As far as I know, this cannot be done with FileMaker. You'd have to find a way to import the data in the PDF into a field such as making a text file of your OCR scan and importing it into a text field in your record.
