Problem with Container Fields and PDFs

Good Morning, I developed a database for a client that resides on their server, using Filemaker Server 16 on PCs.

I connect remotely with my Mac (OS Sierra) to service.


When I insert a PDF into a Container Field, it displays only the icon. And when I try to "Export Field Contents", it exports it as a TextEdit document.


Strangely, any PDFs added previously insert, display, and export correctly.


Any advice for what may be causing this strange behavior?
