I am exporting user data from an old version of an app to a newer version by running scripts that export all the data and import it into the new version. Everything is working except the container fields cannot be exported/imported in that same way. Can someone help me do this using scripts. There is one container field per record for each quote. The container fields store PDF files which were created in File Maker Pro and are located on their hard-drive right now. I wrote a script to export the container fields into separate files, each named with a unique ID number related to that particular quote. Is there a better way.
Export from what 'app'? FileMaker can export containers to file(s) or another FileMaker file/database. If you have an older version of FM, you can export as FM and upgrade the version. Text exports do not directly send container fields.
