Alternative to Export Field Contents that works on server?

I have a script that needs to run hourly, daily , weekly etc so I would like to run it on the server.

The current script uses Export Field Contents in a loop to step through hundreds of records and save the contents of a single field in to separate files for each record (1 file for every record)

Export Field Contents will not run on the server, does anyone have a simple solution to this?

 

I believe I can solve it by:

opening a new window

finding the current record in the new window  (one record at a time)

Export Records (only 1 record found so it will only export the 1 record)

switch back to the first window

loop to next record

 

I think this will take longer than the Export Field Contents and sometimes there will be thousands or hundreds of thousands of records to export.

 

Thanks for any help

Best regards

Ian
