      Problems with Container Files when database moved to another computer

      Post

           I build and maintain my database on an iMac.  When I need to travel and use the database to brief from, I want to transfer to either a MacBook Pro or MacBook Air depending on the screen size I want.  Container files that have a file such as Word, PowerPoint or Excel transfer fine, but continer files with PDF files do not.  When they arrive at the other computer, the PDF files are totally dead and the database won't even let me reload the container with a duplicate PDF.  I might add that I only reference the PDF (and other files) in the containers.  I transfer not only the database, but the source files for the containers when I move to another computer.  I would really welcome a response for anyone that has had this problem and solved it, or knew how to avoid it in the first place.
