Building an Exported file with Multiple Export Statements?

Question asked by ScottBleackley on Mar 27, 2018

I am building .kml files for display with Google Earth.
If I accumulate the entire file in a field then export it to a file, it works in Filemaker Pro but in FMGo I get errors related to greater than 64000 characters in a field.  So I can accumulate in batches of < 64000 characters, but "Export Field Contents" appears to have no way to concatenate additional material to an existing file, it creates a new file for each export.

 

What is the best alternative approach without plugins?

• can I daisy chain several files to be read by google?  vague memory of this…

• does the < 64000 character limit on FMGo16 apply to local variables, if not how to "Export Local Variable" to a file?

 

Any thoughts or suggestions are most welcome.

Thank you
