Migrated database and lost container links

I have migrated an old FileMaker Pro 9 database from a (very old) Mac mini into new FileMaker Pro 17 Advanced on a new Mac mini. Everything looks good other than the container fields that linked to local pdf and jpg files ('the file cannot be found: ...'). I have all these files in one local folder and if I manually reinsert them in the container field, it works. Is there a way to repair these links (about 4000 pdf/jpg) automatically?

 

I have tried importing them but no success... I have tried manage > containers with no success either.

 

I have to admit that I am a TOTAL FileMaker newbie.
