      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      WIndows 7

      Description of the issue

      When converting a v10 database to v13, a container field that holds a reference to a pdf file does not open the file on double clicking.
      The field works perfectly in v10, regardless of the Adobe version.
        ThankS!

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Create in v10 a container field
      Right Click on the container in browse mode and choose
      Insert Object
      Create from file
      Link
      OK
      find a pdf file and link it
      Once this is done, double click on the container

      Expected result

      The pdf file will open in Acrobat Read

      Actual result

      Export the file to V13
      Try to open the container file
      It doesn't open

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      No error messages

      Workaround

      Reload the pdf file in the V13 container
      (works fine when you have just a couple... I have hundreds...)
