Title

Exporting container field contents to remote server

Post

Are you able to export the contents of a container field to a volume on a server?  (In fact the server on which the FM database is hosted.)  (Working on Mac OS X, Filemaker 10 Advanced, file hosted on Filemaker 10 Advanced Server.)

 

It seems like you should be able to do this, and I have tried any number of combinations of filepath variables, but the file keeps getting exported to my computer (the client computer) in the Filemaker application folder. 

 

The paths I have tried include variations on:

 

"filemac:/Server HD/Users/admin/Documents/" & $$FileName  ($$FileName variable was set as the name of the file in the container field)

 

Any suggestions?
