InsertFile script using directoryName rather than specific file.
I am trying to construct a script for a container field) that will provide users with a FileChooser dialog to a specific directory, but not a specific file. The list of files changes frequently and there is no one specific file that is "correct." According to "Help" this should be easy:
The absolute path to a target file or folder in Windows, beginning at the top level of the file system
However, I cannot get it to work. If I specify a file (filewin:/X:/Video/Nightline-2014-05-22-0.mov) it works as expected and inserts the file into the container field. However, if I try to omit the file name (with the expectation of getting a file chooser) I get an error message telling me that: "The file "Video/" could not be found and is required to complete this operation."
I have tried "filewin:/X:/Video/" "filewin:/X:/Video" and "filewin:/X:/Video/*.*" all of which give a similar error message.
I am using FileMaker Pro 12 on Windows 7.
