      I know there is a get(documentsPath) for obtaining the path of the documents folder but does anyone know how I can acheive the same thing for the downloads folder?

       

      Thanks

          On a Mac... for a user... You can calculate it based on the get(documentsPath) ... just substitute the word documents with downloads. I can't remember specificially for windows... but here are the examples in the Help for Get(DocumentsPath) which might help:

           

          Examples

          For FileMaker Pro, for a user named John Smith, returns:

          /C:/Documents and Settings/JohnSmith/My Documents in Windows XP

          /C:/Users/John Smith/Documents/ in Windows Vista.

          /MacintoshHD/Users/John Smith/Documents in the Mac OS

          For FileMaker Server, returns:

          /C:/Program Files/FileMaker/FileMaker Server/Data/Documents in Windows Vista.

          /MacintoshHD/Library/FileMaker Server/Data/Documents in the Mac OS
