Now that we have an easy way to allow users to send files to the server, what would be the easiest way to then import those files into a table? I'd like users to drag files into a container then have that tab (or excel or comma) file imported via a FMS script.

 

To get files placed in the FMS Documents folder in OS X, Aliases and Smart Folders do not appear to work.

 

I'm trying to get a Folder Action to work, but the Apple Script that works on my laptop does not seem to work on the server. I changed folder permissions.

 

on adding folder items to this_folder after receiving these_items

 

tell application "Finder"

duplicate these_items to "Server HD:Library:FileMaker Server:Data:Documents:CB_Data"

end tell

 

end adding folder items to
