Import and Export

I have two questions:


1. I have a solution that has a button to generates a .csv file and attaches it to an eamil which is what I want the user to be able to do. However, I don’t want the user to have the ability to go into the FileMaker Go menu and send/save the FileMaker database. If I go into privileges and turn off the ability to export then it appears that my button with the export script is being blocked due to the change in privilege. Is there a way to make the script override the privilege restriction?

2. When the button with the export .csv to email is run it creates a .csv file on the iOS device. I would like to have a button in the solution that imports that data from the .csv file into a new installed empty database. I can’t seem to make that work. Is importing on an iOS device possible? Any suggestions?
