    Exporting text files



      Exporting text files


      I have FM 12 Advanced running on Windows and FM Go on an iPad. Everything works save an export script I use to sent text files from two field to a client that needs this content in text. When I did the network connect fmwin://bootcamp/files/number.txt via advanced, the export works without issue with FM advanced but on Go, it says the txt file cannot be created. If the export file in advance stays in the same directory as the fm advanceced db, go generates the file without a problem but not with the network directory path. Is there a way to set up the URL or config go to generate the file. Any help on this would be terrific. In every other way, Go performs exactly as it should.

          Thank you for your post.

          Keep in mind that iOS directories are quite different from Mac OS X and Windows.  Therefore, consider using Get (ApplicationVersion) function to check for "Go".  If so, set the Variable to "number.txt".  Oherwise, set it to "fmwin://bootcamp/files/number.txt".

          Let me know if you need additional clarification.
