      Workaround for 64kb text field limitation

      Post

           I want to download the source code from a web page onto my iPhone. But the source code exceeds 64,000kb. I then want to scrape information from this source code. I don't need it to be displayed. But I can't scrape the information from the field unless it is displayed. I heard that it doesn't necessarily need to be displayed on the iphone and that maybe I can scrape the information from the source code without displaying it. 

           I deleted the fields from the layout but now the script returns error 101 telling me that the record is missing.

           If I could find a workaround it would save me from buying multiple copies of Filemaker Pro which has more functionality than my staff need.

               Thank you for your post, and I apologize for the late reply.

               How are you accessing the data?  Use GetLayoutObjectAttribute function to grab the content of the Web Viewer, in conjunction with the search criteria you want to process.  Then, you can put the result into the field.

               Let me know if you need additional clarification.
