Issue with Importing Records to FM files with External (Open) Storage

Importing Records into a file with External (Open) storage, from an FM file

with Embedded containers versa an FM file with Referenced containers. The

results are different, importing records from an FM file with referenced

containers into the FM file with external (open) storage, results in showing

containers as referenced, and not in the "external storage folder" defined in

the Manage Containers Base Directories.

On the other hand, importing records from an FM file with embedded

containers into the FM file with external (open) storage, results in showing

containers as external, and in the "external storage folder" defined in

the Manage Containers Base Directories.

 

Not an expected result, my understanding is that for an FM file set to

External (Open) storage, no matter how something is inserted/placed into a

container, the container should have the contents as externally stored.
