Convert Back and Forth for Containers to Hold Actual Files or Reference to Files

Post

Created a solution (Fmp11 Adv) that has two buttons that each runs a script to: 1st button, converts to insert the "Actual Files" into all the containers. 2nd button, converts to insert as "Reference to Files" in all containers. For lots of records and containers (many 10,000's), it is very, very slow.

      

     1) Is there a relatively faster / easy way to accomplish the above; that is, switch back and forth by scripts to convert containers to hold Actual Files or Reference to Files.

      

     2) Converted above solution to Fmp12, changed containers to "External Storage", "Open Storage". External Storage is to a desktop. Of course 1 above no longer works. For a runtime solution not to be connected to a server, it is necessary to transfer the solution to FM GO with containers holding the "actual files". Is there a way using scripts to effect the storage conversion from "Reference to Files" to "Actual Files" ?
