#1: scripted export with auto-gen filename

Posted on 2008-04-07 21:17:48 by FastWolf

Is there way to use a calculated result as part of a file path in the
Export Records script step? I want the script to export a found set
using a sequential, auto-generated filename, all with no dialog. But
there doesn't seem to be a way introduce a variable into the Output
File Path list.

thanks in advance

You could use a variable. Assign full path and name to.
Set Variable $ExportPath = "filewin:/drive/path/name.ext"
(look out for the counter intuitive use of the / instead of \ )
Put the variable in the: Specify Output File

You could also use a plug-in, which would also give more possibilities

Keep well, Ursus

Ursus,

Thanks, damned if this didn't work. For some reason I couldn't make
this technique work before. I just upgraded to FMP Advanced so maybe
that has something to do with it.

However I've run into another issue with exporting involving FMP error
800. I'll have a separate post on that later, hopefully I can solve
it first.
