    FM Go 14 PDF Not Showing from Container

    BenKingsbury

      In FileMaker Go 14 I want to view a PDF from a container field. So I loaded a pdf field in a container field and then created a script to display the pdf by performing the following steps:

       

      Set Variable [$path; Value: Get ( TemporaryPath ) & "BMR Silage.pdf"]

      Export Field Contents [Username::Test; "$path"; Automatically open]

       

      The problem is, it doesn't open the pdf on my iPad, it just displays a gray screen with the text "BMR Silage.pdf" and "Portable Document Format (PDF)."  See attached.  On my PC it opens the pdf and displays as expected.

       

      Does anyone have a thought as to why the contents of the pdf aren't displaying?

       

      Thank you,
