I'm creating a script where I login with SFTP into an Asterisk/LInux PC to download voice files and voice mails and import them into a FileMaker solution. Use the FTPeek plugin. Login goes fine, collect filepath from the cdr table, download file with SetField and FTPeek_DownloadFileToContainer( filepath ) Everything works fine, accept instead of an interactive container, I get only the icon. When I drag the file out and in the container again, everything works fine. I can't think of anything I did wrong but can't solve this issue and yes I set the container field to "interactive container" in the Instpector/Data/Data formatting :-) I did read the documentation and searched the forum, saw one other posting on this issue, but no solution. Thanks for your effort! Ron
Does anybody know how we can workaround this behaviour of FileMaker Server/Client 15 on Mac/Windows: If we are inserting an image into a container field which stores the files externally and the filename is more than 50 characters, FileMaker strips the filename. I know that we cannot change this, but the problem is that another field which stores the filename for InDesign does not get attention to this. Is there a way to read the stripped containerfield-filename of FileMaker so that we do not have problems with longer named images? Thanks for any help…its driving me crazy :-(
