Export from a container field is not possible,I try copy OLE object (file) to Clipboard,but find no way to paste automatically to ("C:/OLE") for example.
You can't include a container field in exports to formats that don't support container data (which obviously includes text-based and interchange formats) but you can include them if you're exporting to FileMaker format.
Also, you can export the contents of individual container fields unsing teh Export Field Contents[ ] command - so you can export the containers from a whole set of records (eg to a designated folder on your hard drive) by creating a simple looping script that works its way through the found set exporting each container in turn.

Thank you Ray,
I cannot find "Export Field Contents[ ]" command in my "Filemaker Pro 5.0v3",
and I've search the command in the community,"store only a reference" might be help....

My apologies - since you didn't say otherwise, I made the mistake of assuming you were working with a current or recent version of FileMaker - but you're right, the Export Field Contents [ ] command didn't make it's appearance until March 2004 with the release of FileMaker 7.
If you need to extract container field contents as a one-off exercise (eg to subsequently store them as a reference) you could consider exporting from a copy of the file converted to .fp7 format, then using the resulting image files with your earlier verison. If you don't have a more recent copy of FileMaker on hand, you could use the 30-day free trial to accomplish this task.
Meanwhile, you might like to consider upgrading. A lot of new and interesting stuff has become available over the last six or seven versions!
