It would be helpful if you posted the script that is not working. Make sure your script is exporting the data to the documents folder on the iPad. Are you by any chance trying to export to the desktop? If yes, there is no desktop on the iPad.
hi thanks for the response
It seems to be a custom menus issue since I'm trying to limit the user to use the buttons within the app and it appears that if i reduce the menus to exclude export that the script doesn't work. is here any documentation on custom menus in filemaker advanced and the effect it has on filemaker go?
Thank you for your posts.
When modifying the script, make sure at the bottom you enter a check mark next to "Run script with full access privileges".
After tapping the button that executes the script, go back to the Home window, and you will see your text file listed. Once you discover the file is being saved, then you can add the additional steps to send an email.
