Adding PDFs to record

Recommended Posts

I have a situation in which I would like to add multipage PDFs into a filemaker record, then be able to view all pages. Does anyone know of a way to do this? I am using FMP 6 but could use 7 or 8.

Thanks,

Mike

With v6-v8, you can insert the pdf as a movie on Macs, then you will get quicktime controls to flip between pages. If you use v8.5, then you can use a web viewer to view pdf documents on both platforms. The files won't be in container fields in this case, but stored in some accessible location to a web viewer URL.

Thanks for the info. I tried saving pdf as a quicktime movie and then viewing it in FMP but did not like the results. I will look into the FMP 8 solution of viewing it as html. Thanks.

just to clarify... you don't save the pdf as a movie. you insert as quicktime in filemaker. The pdf file is still the same as the original and can be exported as such
