Can I create a text file (or other format) in FileMaker Pro?

Post

Hello,

Is it possible via the included FMP functions where I could scan through a table and write records to an external text (or other format) file?

It would be great if I had the low-level file functions available in other database products.

Not sure what my options are here, but I'm looking for more control than just being able to export to Excel via automating a menu.

Perhaps I have a custom format a client expects where I have to write a file header followed by some data records -- and I have do be able to do this manually in a script.

Is this possible in FMP?

Thanks,
