Using Variables as file name in xml and xsl import


Hi all,

Relatively new to Filemaker, but getting better all the time.

I'm having a problem using variables during xml imports and keep getting errors along the lines of:

"XML/XSL information is not enough to proceed with import/export."


"XML parsing error:

unable to open primary document entity ''

Line Number: 0
Column Number: 0"

The second error I get when I manually select the xml file and use a variable for the xsl.

The scrip works fine if I manually select the files (xml and xsl) and the variables work well when I test them by inserting the file path into a contaner i.e. the path seems to be constructed properly. I even get the same error when I pass the container value to the import.

So my question is why does FM understand the file path when working with containers but not the xml import function.

Thanks for any assitance,
