External Storage Container Field: relative file location reference is wrong

Good morning everyone,


I hope your day is going well. Thanks in advance for any assistance and/or advice you are willing to provide!


I'm having trouble displaying a pdf file in a container field. I'm using Filemaker Pro 13 Server to host the database file, and I am storing the container data externally. I noticed that the external storage location relative reference in the container storage options for the field is pointing to a folder that no longer exists. I have specified a location in the Open Storage type field, which is located on a separate network accessible location.


My questions are these:

  1. Does specifying a file location in the Open Storage field of the storage tab for the container field supersede the relative file path?
  2. If not, how do you change the relative file location reference information?


Thanks and have a great day!


God bless,
