An issue that has plagued me for years, and judging from comments on the webs, many others as well.
I need to export my data as a tab-separated file, and need it to be .txt format. The application I am exporting to does not accept .tab as a file format, and I can't use .csv since my data has commas. I know that this can be done if you script the path and filename, but my export locations need to be user-selected each time.
This used to be no problem, then Filemaker decided to change something, and only allow the .tab extension for tab-separated exports, because, you know, that makes perfect sense. However, the documentation online still claims .txt as a valid export suffix.
Outside of selecting a file path and name by script algorithm, is there any way to manually export as .txt? My searching tells me no....
