Title

Crashing on High Memory Usage

Post

     I have a database that by necessity has almost 15,000 PDF files embedded in it in individual records.  I don't have a problem with the file size this causes, however as I go through multiple records and view the files in a Container field, each new record that loads increases the memory that Filemaker is using.  When it gets to around 425-450MB, filemaker will freeze when trying to load the next PDF file and completely crash.  Is there any way to automatically or manually release this memory, or prevent this crash from occuring?  I don't want to have to restart the program every couple hundred files and Flush Cache doesn't seem to have any effect.  Thank you very much!
