It be nice... to know the zipFile()  size stored in a container field?

 

I tried a number of combinations , in my code already nothing returning any thing close

to the remote DL, and unzip.. then knowing the actual size of zipped file

 

 

1st, I Copy As,  my filemaker fmp12 file to a folder..  There I know the original filesize

Then I am zipFile, setting a Container field with the zip file.. viewing it on a layout, 

 

[[[   I want to preview the file on layout here first, know how big it is... ]]]

      

I can do both email attach and Ftp the file..

Ftp is fast..
I am not certain. email is a winner yet!

 

Then NEXT, a button

The container is the ftpeek ftp to a remote location server

 

 

$goPath       is the full path... ie..      c:\folder\folder\filemakerApp\filename.zip

Attached my code
