Move or Copy a file to a new location from within a script
I am about to create a database to handle document and image storage and search. I would like to store the documents and images outside the database and have the database only store the file reference. I am looking for a way for a user to create a new record for a document or image, upload the document or image and then have Filemaker store the file in two folders on the Filemaker server computer, one for documents and one for images. I want Filemaker to create the filename based on the document/image name and time/date it was uploaded. I want filemaker to store a copy of the document/image in a central location on our Filemaker Server.
Is this possible and how does one go about it?
What script steps can be used to control where the document/image is stored?
What version of FileMaker do you have?
What you describe is very close to what can be done in FileMaker 12 by specifying external storage for the container field.
