Hi there,

 

I'm new to Filemaker and am using FM 12 Pro, i'm making a database which i made a couple of years back in Acces with some Vbacode.

I want to export tables to textfiles with a fixed length, so no comma's or tabs. Is this possible and how can i do this?

 

The fields in the table are already the right length so for instance the field customerId is 7 characters and the field customerName is 5 characters then the export should be "1234567Prins" without quotation marks of course.

 

The only exports i can make are comma or tab delimited such as 1234567,Prins or 1234567 Prins

 

Could you please help me out and thanks for reading !
