Script for exporting multiple files?


     I am doing exports in .tab format to upload to the web. The website I am uploading to has a 15MB per file limit but I have about 250MB of data to upload. This is not a one off upload but potentially quite often. Is it possible to write a script that will enable Filemaker to automatically create multiple files during the one export routine, governed either by file size or record quantity?

     I also have another question. Does anyone know what the difference between a Filemaker created .tab file and an Excel created .tab file is? My upload fails with the Filemaker export but is successful if I open it in Excel and resave it as a .tab file with zero changes.
