Ye olde "Export Field Contents"

I'm having trouble scripting the "Export Field Contents" process. FMP11v3, Windows.


I have a container field with scanned signatures that I need to export to a remote volume. The volume is mounted, and the current user has write privileges. In my script, I set the export path as a variable. When I execute the "Export Field Contents" script step, I get the following error: "Sample.png could not be created on this disk. Use a different name, make more room on the disk, unlock it or use a different disk." If I hard-code the export path to the exact same value rather than using a script variable, the export works (but this isn't a useful solution, since the path for each record needs to have a different file name). Similarly, exporting manually by clicking in the field, choosing the menu item "Export Field Contents..." and exporting to the remote volume works.


Thanks in advance for any hints.
