PDF Import on Mac and PC

Question asked by ender on Feb 3, 2012

We've been importing a folder with thousands of (single-page) PDFs into a container field using a script on the Mac. We're using this Filemaker database as a visual "catalog" of PDF images. The script basically uses File>Import>Folder, and specifies "Picture and movie files" and "Import only a reference to each picture file".

 

I'm now incorporating PC users. But when I try the same import operation on the PC, I get this error message: "No files of the specified file type were found in the specified folder."

 

Not sure why the import is working on the Mac but not on the PC. All programming appears OK... I've hit a brick wall with this, have no idea what to try. And the natives (PC users) are getting restless...
