Title

Container field in FM12 server

Post

     Hi,

     I use RFM (FileMaker API for Ruby) to import a PDF into a container field. After importing the PDF file into FM12 server, I checked the file path in container field. It pointed to my local computer where the file was stored. Apparently it is the container field with referenced file. I had already set the container field as externally stored data, and set the base directory and folder for externally stored data. Is it possible to store PDF file externally  when using RFM to import the record?

     Many thanks.
