Export field contents do not work on Server schedule.....
Then , how to export the Container data to Desktop through a FileMaker Schedule
You didn't mention anything about a server before.
Servers do not have access to the desktop path anyways. They only have access to get(documentspath) and get(temporarypath). Also, export field contents is not compatible with server scheduled scripts.
If you wanted to save something to the desktop, you would have to run a system level script from a filemaker schedule. This would copy the file from your calculated container field contents path, to the desktop path.
Are you on a mac or PC server? Are you familiar with how to setup a batch file or system level script?
Yes , done some batch file schedule before.
But ,does the batch file can retrieve data from Container fields.
You have to feed the batch file a parameter with the path of what you are trying to copy from filemaker.
It's detailed somewhat here:
Many thanks !! let me have a look on it.
