Title

Locked External Zip File After Inserting into Container Field

Post

I have an external zip file and I'm using the INSERT File command to put the zip file into a FM Pro (v12) container field. Works great!

The problem is that after inserting the file, FM Pro does not "let go" of the file, and therefore, if I try and delete the zip file (outside of FM), I get the following error message in windows 7: the action can't be completed because the folder is open in filemaker.

 

If I close FM, then I can delete the file.

Is there anything that I can do, within my script, to release FM's hold on the zip file.

All suggestions are appreciated.
