How can I export records to a non-native file type (besides the normal Tab, Excel...). I need to export records to my own filetype/format, because the already existing formats will not work for my needs. Is there a way to at least export to a plain .txt file, with some scripting to apply my format, and then rename the file after (or during) creation?

 

I want custom file format of my own design (which has been problem solved and perfected with manual tests) are to make files for NFC chips- which the other file formats will not work well with (due to, including, extra characters and/or unnecessary formatting). I do have filemaker pro 16 advanced, but could not find anything helpful within the custom functions.
