I created a container to store pdf files but when i click on insert, the PDF is grayed out. What could be the problem.
This could be many different things. I need more information.
Which version of FileMaker?
Are all file Insert options grayed out?
Have you checked the privilege set you are using to see if you are able to edit the field?
Those are just a few things. A screenshot would help me diagnose the problem as well.
You need to set the field optimisation to interactive (see screenshot). Note, however, that you can also use Insert >> Picture to insert a PDF, then if necessary you can change the otimisation setting later.
