The alternative is to dump a text file to the network of the extracted fields and import manually from within filemaker. I was hoping to bypass the user intervention.
If you can dump the text file into a directory inside the Documents directory, FileMaker can make periodic checks of this directory and import the data automatically each time a new file name appears in this folder. (No plug in or system script required to check the list of file names BTW)
Would that work for you?
If you can't dump to a folder inside documents, but can dump elsewhere, there are system scripts and plug ins that can retrieve a list of files from a directory in those locations.
Thanks Phil ... Hadn't even thought of that ... I'll give it a try ...
Thanks for the quick response.
You can use Get(DocumentsPathListing) to get a list of all documents and folders inside your documents folder. Such a list can then be parsed to extract just the nams of files inside a specific folder inside the documents directory.
