Thank you for your post.
It is possible that the Container Field was changed (to a Text field for instance) at some point, which would empty the field in old records and would not allow for import in new records. If you could check a few things:
- Is the "Container Field" still a Container? (hasn't been changed to a text, date, timestamp, etc.)
- What options do you see when right-clicking (or control click on mac) the "Container Field"?
- Can you select and successfully use "Insert File" or "Insert PDF"?
I look forward to your response!
-Yes, they are still container fields
-Right click in container in browse mode only gives “reload” option
-Cannot successfully “insert file” or “insert PDF”

Thank you for your response.
There is a PDF in the container field if you are seeing a "Reload" option, but no "Insert" options.
If you are having this issue on new records, you may have the container setup for Global Storage. Go to File > Manage > Database... > Select the Container Field > Select "Options..." > Make sure "Use global storage..." is unchecked.
Aside of this, it may be some other development cause such as... Auto-Enter Calculation on the Container, Scripting, etc...
You might create a new container field (for testing) or even a new file to see if the issue persists?
