    FileMaker Go 14


      Appears that Go does not provide a way to script a delete process to delete solutions on the Go platform.

          Thank you for your post.


          To delete a solution on an iOS device with FileMaker Go, export to an empty text file.  For example, if the solution you want to delete is named Test.fmp12, create the following script in another solution:


          Set Error Capture [ On ]

          Enter Find Mode [ ]

          Set Field [ <field in your current solution> ; <value that does not exist in field> ]

          Perform Find [ ]

          Export Records [ No dialog ; file:Test.fmp12 ; <Tab-Separated Text> ]




          "Perform Find" will find zero records, and then when you export to a Tab-Separated Text file (or CSV), there will be no data to create a file, and it will overwrite Text.fmp12.


          Let me know if you need additional clarification.

            there's a great solution by karo which actually provides the possibility to delete some files within the FMGo folder via script!
