FileMaker Server can only access documents in a couple of locations - specifically, the Temp directory (which you can fetch via Get ( TemporaryPath ) and the Documents directory ( Get ( DocumentsPath )) or subfolders thereof. This is a security feature. You won't be able to specify just any directory you want, but will need to place the document from which you want to import in an allowed location, either directly from the generating program or via a shell script.
thank you for your answer Mike,
I typed out a long rambling question, then stopped a min and went to the server machine and threw it in the documents folder of the user that server basically runs under and it worked! lol
Appreciate it sir.
