Optionally saving remote file / data with imports

    Hi,

     

    Imports can import from remote sources: URLs, XML, ODBC.

    It would be very useful for troubleshooting or archiving if we could optionally give a pathname for saving the data Filemaker received.

    Even better we could set it as always save the file, or only save it if the import encounters an issue.

     

    Moreover, it could even offer a performance opportunity, avoiding to double the remote query, if you need to import a subset of the columns in a different table.
