Function to get binary container data (PDF, DOC, DOCX, ...)?

If have a PDF stored in a container field (internal) as an example.


Is there a FMP function that will get the binary data from the container field so I could pass that data to another function? None of the functions I've tried have worked thus far. I can do that data extraction using SQL/JDBC but was wondering if there's a FileMaker internal solution.


Thanks in advance.
