Open File from Container

Recommended Posts

I imagine this has been covered but I'm posting this because I seem to have no luck finding the useful stuff when I search FM Forums.

I'm trying to find information about opening files that are stored in containers in their native application without having to export them. I'd like to be able to click on a PDF or Word dock have it open for some mark-up or editing then when its saved have the saved version be in FileMaker.

If you can point me to any previous post or anything that will help me do this it would be appreciated.

If the file is Embedded and not stored as a reference, then you will not be able to make the changes without uploading the modified field back into the container.

Perhaps you will want to look into storing as a reference or 360 Works Super Container.
