Export content of one field per record one after another to a single text file

Post

I would like to export the contents of a text field to a text file.

 

The contents for each record will be written one after another.

 

I currently do this using an AppleScript to paste the contents

of each record into a text editor.

 

This is getting pretty slow as the number of records increase.

 

It should be fairly straight forward to export directly to a text

file from within FileMaker, but there does not seem to be an

simple way to do this. All the options I have seen involve using

commas or tabs to separate the records.

 

I simply want FileMaker to write the contents of one field for

each record to a text file without doing anything else.

 

Is there a way to do this?

 

Thanks in advance :-)
