Product and version: FileMaker Pro14.0.4

OS and version:  Windows 7 Professional 64 bit, Microsoft office 2013

Browser and version: N/A

Hardware: Intel Core I3, 8 GB RAM

Description: Drag and drop or 'Insert File' an MS office attachment like word, Excel or Outlook attachment (.msg) file. upon Inserting or dropping on container field, it hangs the system for 30-40 seconds. file size is small, less than 100 KB. Same size pdf or text document works okay.

How to replicate: make a global container field, drag and drop or insert an email attachment (.msg) or word / excel file  onto that field, it will take a while to insert this and hangs up the application during that time. In contrast, pdf or text document of same size doesnt have problem.

Workaround None
