The TextEncode

Question asked by user28271 on May 8, 2018

The TextEncode documentation demonstrates in “Example 2” how to encode a field, then export the contents.

(https://fmhelp.filemaker.com/help/16/fmp/en/#page/FMP_Help%2Ftextencode.html%23wwconnect_header)

 

However, when I use the following example, my exported file simply contains “iso-8859-1.txt” and non of the field contents.  Without the TextEncode function, it exports the field content as expected.

Set Field [ table::container ; TextEncode ( table::text ; "iso-8859-1" ; 4 ) ]
Export Field Contents [ table::container ; "output.txt” ]

 


 

Thoughts? Any help is appreciated.
