  1. I am trying to import data from a MySQL database and need to somehow also import fieldnames to be the fieldname in FMP. Is there anyway to do that? I have a CSV of the fieldnames and I also have a MySQL dump of fieldnames and associated data. Thanks for any help.
  2. I can manually import a .csv URL from the web just fine. Works every time. Why can't I script it to import that same URL? Thanks! An example (not a real URL) is: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/16irOtO503scu0pKguIzYSM0PTu1oc7rvY7Y/export?gid=0&format=csv

  4. I'm having a problem I hope someone can help me with. I need to import a csv file on a daily basis that gets deposited on an FTP site. Problem is, FMP12 (my current version) does not easily allow for import of csv files in a cloud hosted application. I need to define a file path in order for the import process to work, but cannot find an easy solution to accomplish this. Any help would be much appreciated!

  7. As the title says I'm having trouble exporting records as a csv file to a file on the user's desktop. The problem I have is apparently these export paths: filemac:~/Desktop/LegAve_Orders/$file file:Desktop/LegAve_Orders/$file Both give a "File cannot be created on this disk" error. I assume because the export paths are not correct. Is there even a way to do this without knowing the user name?
