Capture file extension on container export.


Hello All,

I have a database that has 3,000 images pasted into container fields. The problem is that they were pasted from different machine types and therefor have different file extentions.

When I rightclick the field filemaker suggests the name based on the file type:

untitled.wmf, untitled.bmp, untitled.pct, etc.

Is there anyway to extract the dot extension? "wmf", "pct", etc?


Thank you,
