      Perform script on server - (without FMP server)

      Post

           From FM GO, I need to simply run a export script on the host computer FMP 13 that exports images and and excel file to the local hard drive.  It seems the "perform script on server" script step requires the database be hosted on FM Server.  Is there really no possible way to run an export script remotely (triggered via FM GO) that creates the exported files on the host computer with just FMP 13? 

           Is there any workaround?  Would be completely ridiculous to pay for server just to have this simple function.  Please help, if you have any ideas.

               In theory, you could use the FM GO client to create a record in a table and set data to fields in that table. A looping script or one that uses Install OnTimerScript could maintain constant checks for the appearance of new records in this table. When a new record appears, this script on the host FMP can use the data in the newly created record to produce the results that you want and then "mark" that record so that it doesn't process this "request" more than once.
