      Checking whether a pdf in a container field is stored by reference

      Post

           I am using Filemaker 11. I am working on a database that somebody else populated. There are a number of container fields which contain PDFs. I know that when yuo insert the file you can choose whether to insert the file directly or just create a reference to the file, but I can't figure out an easy way of checking which method was used. Is there an easy way to do this?

           For some added context, I was asked to figure out why PDFs in container fields were not opening on the iPad, and I suspect that it is because they were inserted yb reference, but I'm not sure the best way to check.
