    FM 15 Preview PDF in Container on Sever


      How can I run a FM 15 file that has a global container field to Show PDF files on lokal clients?


      I have a srkipt that worked lokaly but after sending it to the server I cant opene the PDF files within the container field, it tells me that the connection is not possible or alike.

          Two issues here.


          First sort out the connection error. When you say "after sending it to the server" do you mean hosting the file with FileMaker Server?


          Secondly, global fields don't work the same when shared multi-user as they do local with one user. Each user gets their own value in the global field, so you cannot use global fields to propagate changes between users. Use a "preferences table" for something like this.
