Hi there,

I have a portal in FileMaker 13 and would like to transfer its data to an SQL table using ODBC.

I have the following script, it does work but only for the first record, it does not go to th next records in the portal.

I have passed the values of the Portal as Parameters in the script (List(SelectedCustomProperties::CustomPropertyId;SelectedCustomProperties::CustomPropertyName;SelectedCustomProperties::CustomPropertyDescription)

Go to Object [Object Name: "SendToSQL"]

Go to Portal Row [Select;First]


Go to Layout["SQLTable Layout"] -> this layout is actually the table from SQL but coonected through ODBC

New Record/Request

Set Field(SQLTable::PropertyId;GeValue(Get(ScriptParameter);1;)]

Set Field(SQLTable::PropertyName;GeValue(Get(ScriptParameter);2;)]

Set Field(SQLTable::PropertyDescription;GeValue(Get(ScriptParameter);3;)]

Go to Portal Row [Select;Next;Exit after last]

End Loop


Am I missing anything?


Your help is much appreciated.
