I am using File Maker Pro (v.7) to make a relationship database. I am using container fields that have shortcuts to PDF files. Unfortunately, I can not open those PDF files via File Maker Pro using Adobe Reader X. Apparently there is a compatibility issue between the two softwares? How can I remedy this issue and open my files?
Since Filemaker 7 was 2003-2005 (they're on 11 now), I'd have to imagine that the issue is the age of the software creating the PDFs and the compatibility with what is, essentially an Acrobat 6 document.
While newer versions (Acrobat 10 or Filemaker 11) can make backward compatible documents (readable by older versions of Reader) there is no "forward compatibility" feature.
If you visit oldversion.com, you can dowwnload previous versions of Adobe Reader, but that won't solve the bigger issue: that you're using nearly seven year old software with new software and they just don't work together.
