    container field: calculated path name gets modified while writing to disk

      Summary

      container field: calculated path name gets modified while writing to disk

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      14.0.1

      Operating system version

      Mac OS X Mavericks & Yosemite

      Description of the issue

      I want to store container data, mostly PDFs, in folders on disk, referring to related projects. This file structure has grown over the years and always starts toplevel with a folder named by the year, continued inside with project folders, that also start with  year and month indentifiers, like:
      2015/2015.10 project x/subfolder

      Data should be stored externally (Open storage)

      The path is calculated correctly and content will be saved to expected location, but writting content to the disk, it always ends up as:
      2015/2015_10 project x/subfolder
      replacing the dot with an underscore.

      Is there a method to force a dot being written rather tha the underscore?

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      calculated field (path) value:
      2015/2015.10 project x/subfolder

      written file path:
      2015/2015_10 project x/subfolder
