have you tried to right click the attachment in outlook, select "copy", and then see if you can right click the container and choose "paste".
Outlook is finicky, it interacts better with the OS than it does with other applications
Hi Mike - thanks for the suggestion, didn't work though
Copy/Paste from desktop works fine, when I copy from outlook the paste option is greyed out in FileMaker.
Looks like outlook really doesn't want to play nicely...
