    iPad 2 export data to Windows 7

      iPad 2 export data to Windows 7

      Post

      Hi, all.

      I have a file which collects some data on iPad 2.
      Now, I need to export those records.
      I have build a  layout with a button which can export all the data in the records.
      Everything goes well on Mac. (I can export all data on Mac by clicking that button.)

      But now, I have another requirement.
      Is there any way I can use to export those records on Windows 7 by just clicking one button on iPad2?
      I mean, I hope I can operate on iPad2, and then all the data were exported on Windows 7.
      Is there any one knows how to do?

      Thanks,
      Howard

          Thank you for your post.

          I'm not sure how you are specifying a Mac export.  It would be the same for Windows.

          If you are only hosting on a Mac and not using Get (HostApplication) and Get (SystemPlatform), then you should consider this.

          Have a Startup script that checks HostApplicationVersion.  If the file is hosted, then it will be blank.  At that point, you can populate a field with Get (SystemPlatform).  Then, the guests who access the file can check the field to determine what export to use.  A sample script could be:

          If [ IsEmpty ( Get ( HostApplicationVersion ) ) ]
             Set Field [ <designated field> ; Get ( SystemPlatform ) ]
          End If

          -----

          Click a button on the layout to execute a script on the hosted file, which then checks for the platform and decides which export script to use.

          Let me know if you need additional clarification.
