They could be exported out with the new filename, then re-imported back in again to the container field. A script could be written to automate this process.
Thank you for your feedback. I did think of this but I was trying to avoid THAT way. I'm always trying to eliminate steps, but in this situation, I guess I cannot do that.
Now I'll have to figure out how to do this. :smileyhappy:, given that I'm a newbie to FM9Pro
Thank you and take care.
Would you be able to help me get started with this? I'm guessing I would export the container to a particular folder, rename the file, then import that file back into the container. Let just assume that the original file name is old.jpg and we want to change it too new.jpg.
Really appreciate your help....
If it makes a difference, I'm using a Mac, 10.5.5
Resolved this now. Thank you
Could you post your accepted solution for posterity?
Can you tell me how I can post my code snipet into a message here?
You can either take a screenshot, post it to web server, and then link it to your post... or, you can just type out the information.
Actually, I don't really need to post the code because the solution was quit simple.
I originally wanted to change the name of the file that was stored in the container. Instead, I created a field called PhotoName and then replaced that field with the name structure that I wanted. I then simply exported the container field, using the PhotoName field.
It just goes to show you that even though a forum member may not have your exact solution, their suggestion can spark an idea!
