"Insert File" script step w/o specifying file, does not bring up dialog

Post

Hello,

I am using FMP Advanced 10, and I am trying to make a button to insert PDF files into a container field. I want my users to be able to choose what file they would like to insert. I have consulted to the FMP Help reference and it says:

"If you do not specify a file to insert, FileMaker Pro displays a dialog box  where the user can select a file."

But it does not bring up a dialog when I run the script.

I tried two different ways of writing the script:

-----------------------------------------------------------

1.

Go to Field[table::field]

Insert File[]

2.

Insert File[table::field]

-----------------------------------------------------------

And yes I made sure the file is a "container" field.

What am I doing wrong?
