I have a container field which stores file references to a shared network folder.  It is populated by PC and Mac users.  I can script an "Open URL" so the PC users can open the files created by the Mac users, but have not been able to find a way for the Mac users to open references created by PC users.  Any advice?

The obvious one I guess: why store references?  Do people need to be able to get to the files outside of FM?

 

If not - and  you only want to keep the FM file size down - then use the remote container storage feature of FMS?

It's working.  I have a calculation creating the path based on the current OS, the OS that originally created the file reference, and contents of the GetValue (GetAsText (Doc_Container); 2 ).  This calculation is then set as a variable for the open document Send Event.  Now a Mac user can open a file referenced in the container field which was created by a PC user and vice versa.
