    FileMaker Pro 7 has a new Export Field Contents function that allows users to export the contents of any field to any defined path on the local computer or a mapped networked drive. One of the great new features is that you can store more than one path, which will enable developers to easily create cross-platform solutions and navigate through more than one directory without using multiple scripts or expensive plug-ins. If you combine this capability with the new GetAsCSS and GetAsSVG functions to retain the text formatting developers are one step closer to creating HTML documents without having to write a single line of HTML code.
