Hi tom bonge:
Thanks for posting.
FileMaker Go currently lacks the functionality to export records, either as XML or other formats. The only workaround involve moving the database from the device to a desktop machine, or accessing a remote file which could export from the host end.
I encourage you to enter your request into our Feature Requests web form at:
These requests are read by Development and Product Management where they are considered for a future release.
I could easily copy your post and paste it into the web form, but there are some additional questions asked that only you can answer.
Thank you for your reply, I submitted the request as suggested.
Our current solution is a script in FileMaker Go that emails a copy of the entire database file. This works even when the iPad does not have connectivity because the email will stay in the outbox until it can be sent. Having the script send an XML or CSV file instead would be much more efficient because it would be about 4k istead of 600k.
I would like to hear form other users if you have found creative ways to get your data out in a more efficent manner.
