Export Records in FMP format on FileMaker Server

    Currently, FileMaker Server does not support exporting records in FMP file format (.fmp12). If you want to export records in FileMaker Pro format, you have to do that via the FileMaker Pro client instead of the FileMaker Server.

     

    We would really like to have the ability to export records in FMP file format via FileMaker Server, because this is the only export format that retains all of the text formatting (font, font size, font style, color) of fields upon export. Then, later on, when we import all of that data back into our FileMaker database, all of that text formatting still remains intact (font, size, style, color)... because all of that text formatting was originally retained upon the original FMP export.

     

    Currently, if we want to retain all of this text formatting, we have to do this export/import process via the FileMaker Pro client, but we would really love to do this via FileMaker Server instead.

     

    The solution would be as simple as opening up the "Export Records" script step to allow it to export records in FMP format on FileMaker Server.
