At the very least, it's a "documentation bug"
I have provided feedback on the article.. FM's message is also mis-leading by stating "container fields cannot be exported" thats far too generic and incorrect. Instead perhaps it should state "the contents of this container field cannot be exported" or words to that effect.
Had this problem a while ago with PDF files, are you attaching the file as a 'file' or an object? if you insert just a raw file, then it should be ok, if you click on the container and choose 'insert object' then thats when the problem arises.
How do you go when you right click on the contain and select 'insert file'?
As per my 2nd edit above:
I was in fact dragging a file into the container rather than right clicking and choosing insert file.
If the FileMaker error message actually stated what it meant, rather than container fields cannot be exported (which they can)
I probably would have saved myself a post or two on the forum :-) but its no big deal really. All is working well.
Can you please help me with writing a script to export field contents of a container field?
I am working with Filemaker Go for iPad application.
I would like to export the pictures taken on the iPad to a PDF/Excel file or attach them to an email.
