Make sure the data is in the format you tell FileMaker. FileMaker uses internally 4 letter codes to know what data is stored in containers and you need to pass a suitable type code.
Please note that types are always 4 characters long, "PDF " has a space on the end.
Version 5.2 and later can use the filename from URL if you don't provide one yourself.
