container with file inside will not open the file when double-clicked
Operating system version
mac OS 10.6.5
Description of the issue
I have a container field that will allow me to insert a file (doc or pdf) to a database on my server running Filemaker server. However, when I double-click the container nothing happens. I expect the file to open in it's originating program but this does not happen. No error messages occur.
Steps to reproduce the problem
double-click a container field that had content.
I expect the file to open in it's originating program but this does not happen.
the files I am inserting in the container field are located on the server's harddrive along with filemaker server.
I recently upgraded to filemaker 11 from filemaker 9.
I need those files to open. I deleted a particular content in this container and re inserted it, to store the file in my database, and still no file is launched on double-click.
Exact text of any error message(s) that appear
no error messages
filemaker server running on my small network server.
I tried having Filemaker export the file and that worked fine so obviously the container field has the content.
