Given my limited Filemaker Development experience, I would like to know from advanced users how detailed a Log should be?


I have added a script step to log into a global field details for every script like

  • script name,
  • script start time,
  • account name,
  • globalFields Set/Reset,
  • globalVariables Set/Reset,
  • Records Generated,
  • Fields committed.


What's the difference between using a .log file vs a .txt file?

Should the Log file be tab delimited or comma delimited?

Any pointers/suggestions to any resources on how to organise each log entry?
