We would need to know what the new server is... ?
try changing "imagewin" to "file" or "filewin"
thanks for the quick reply
the new server is just a higher spec windows 2008 r2 server with FM12 advanced
the biggest change we have made is the server used to be based within our office with our client machiens where as now we have it hosted offsite at a data centre.
we can login to it via remote desktop connection and all our client FM12 clients login via open remote and use the external server ip address
thanks once again for your swift response
FileMaker 12 now has the "insert from URL" script step... just noting...
The imagewin (file) relied on the path to the file being a local address. It could be the users machine or it could be a locally mounted share-volume... It must be an exact match for the entire path to the file from that machines perspective.
If you have the setting for inserting the file with only a reference to the file, it may not work for your external users as they do not have the same relativity as you do when you connect via Remote Access.
we have created a new container with external open storage turned on
we have made a simple copy and paste script which moves image from original field to new conatiner
when this script does a transfer it fails and bring the following error log
could anyone please advise whats happening and why its not working and moving images over?
many thanks once again
Copy and paste is most unreliable... have you checked their server compatiblitiy?
If you are copying and pasting an image that is not internal, it may just be pasting the last thing it had on the clipboard.
Have you tried the 'set field' step... or perhaps insert from URL... as that works nicely.
