Hi Maximillian Thayer,
Thanks for posting.
Just to make sure we're on the same page, I'm assuming clicking "Download" refers to running a FileMaker script that saves the container field's file to a specified location. If there are any other JDBC/FileMaker moving parts in that particular equation please let me know.
To start, please allow me to verify the following:
-In FileMaker, what is the result if the same PDF file uploaded through JDBC is inserted through Insert > File and the "Download" button is clicked?
-What is the result if a different file is inserted through Insert > File and the "Download" button is clicked?
-What were the values used in the PutAs (col, 'type') function and/or can you post an example of the full statement that was used?
-What Operating Systems have you been able to reproduce the issue on?
Also, it looks like we're running FileMaker Pro 11 v1. Updating to FileMaker's latest version may help the avoidance of additional issues. You can download the updates here:http://www.filemaker.com/support/downloads/
