Title

Container Problems

Post

Hello,

 

I'm trying to create a "link" from filemaker to a pre-existing PDF file for each record in my database. I'd like the file to be referenced and not imported because my database is already huge, and therefore would like the PDF to open in preview (I'm on a Mac). I've tried using a container field and referenced the PDF (I've tried it both as a file and an image), but for some reason when I double click on the Icon that appears nothing happens. I've also tried creating a button which runs the following script:

 

If [Orders::Invoice=True]

 

Go to Field [Select/perform; Orders::Invoice] 

 

Else

 

Insert File [Reference; Orders::Invoice]

 

End If

 

and that didn't work either. What am I doing wrong? 

 

I'm Using FM Pro 10.
