Can't Export Container Contents (but can drag and drop)

I've inherited a solution which stores a load of container data.

I'm trying to reduce the overall size of the file by using the GetThumbnail function to reduce the size of images in the containers.

This works OK, but I've noticed a few records where the container data seems corrupt. I can see the image stored in the container, but cannot use the export field option to export the data (it's greyed out, and the script step also fails).

I CAN, however, drag and drop the image to the desktop, and then re-import it, which seems to sort everything out.


My question is - is there a way I can script the drag-and-drop functionality of exporting from Filemaker, which works differently to the standard Export Field script step?


P.S - Yes, I've already tried importing the records into a clone, and the issue is brought across with the import...
