Setting a FilePath into a Container field - possible?

Can a container field with External storage be trained to learn a location of a file other than via importing?  I have a 14 GB folder containing around 28,000 pdfs each in its own folder (from a SuperContainer storage structure).  I’d like to convert this to filemaker external storage without a 14 GB import. 

Any tricks I can employ?


One trick that has not worked = doing a SetField on the container with the full formed path to the PDF.
