      Press cancel button script

      Post

           Hi,

           I've got three files I need to convert but have a dilemma. I have created a script to convert the three files but the files are inter-dependent in that fields connect one to the other.  If I convert file 1, it needs 2.fmp12 - problem is that hasn't been created yet by converting so I get the dialogue box to point to it. If I press 'cancel it will continue without that file then convert file 2 and make 2.fmp12 then move onto file 3.

           All I want is a means to press the cancel button in my script. Any ideas? I've tried Get(ErrorCaptureState) in an IF statement but not sure how to say 'if error, press cancel button'.

               What problem is solved by using a script?

               When manually converting files, (You are converting FileMaker files from an older to a newer version?), you can resolve this issue by selecting and opening all three files at the same time.

                 Hi Phil,

                 It's taking info from an older system (fp7) and until I put the new system inlace, I need to convert these info files on a regular basis to get the latest info as I develop. A script just makes it quicker by button-pushing when I need

                   I think setting up the script will take longer than doing this by hand. You simply do this:

                   a) Open FileMaker 13

                   b) Pull down the File Menu and select "Open"

                   c) find your files, select them as a group and click Open

                   That's it...
