Title

File Reference for a relative path to the desktop

Post

I've seen many people on the web ask for this, but no one seems to have the answer yet...

 

I have a script that needs to write a found set of records into a simple text file on the DESKTOP. Since the script can be run by any user in the network, the file reference for the Export script step must be a RELATIVE path. I'm using FMP 8.5 which does not allow you to include variables in the file reference definition, so can anyone tell me the file reference syntax for a RELATIVE path to the desktop? I can't find it in the Help file or anywhere else on the web!

 

I'm using a Mac.

 

THANKS for your help to this funny problem!

 

Phil.
