FM14 help says interactive "is not supported for container fields that are in portals. However, it is supported if the container field is in awithin a portal."
So your implementation should be supported. We need more information for your environment.
I'm not sure what you mean by environment, but I'll try to give as much as possible

the popup button is in a portal on the clients layout, the portal is pointing to a table called status tables and the pdf container is within that. As I said the first page of the pdf is shown but not the subsequent pages. the two tables are linked by _pk_customer_id.
hope that's all the information you need, but let me know if you need more
Sorry for my English, you give enough information.
You didn't wrote FM version in first post, then I assumed using latest FM14, but it is not the fact.
FM13 don't support your implementation. The container can be set as interactive, but work as image.
I think it is enhancement (new feature) of FM14, but couldn't find document for it.
yeah sorry keep forgetting I no longer have the latest version, may have to upgrade
