I had difficulty to retain the selected fields to export to a HTM file in FM. I lost the selected fields order when I logout/close FM as a guest.

But I can retain the selected field orders for the next time to export to a HTM file as long as I'm the host and only user in FM.

So how do I retain the selected field order for exporting to a HTM file as

a guest ?

The way you retain an export order in FM is the same for a Host or Guest. Write a script with the Export() script step to automate the export. When you open and close the script in Scriptmaker, FM asks if you want to keep the export order saved with the script or update it to the current order. This step retains an export order in a way similar to find orders in Perform Find (restore), sort orders in Sort(restore), and page setups in Page Setup(restore).

Bd: Thank for repsond my question. That's the way I did in "Export Record"

script step. If I select "restore" and "keep" option in "Export Record"

script I always lost the previous entered export fields order list after

I logout FM and relogin again later. If I didn't select "restore" and

select "keep" option in the script step I will lost the export fields

order list after I logout as a guest and relogin as a guest again. I still

have export field order list if I login as the host only. How comes ?

I thought the "restoe" option is to restore the export field order saved

when I open/close the script steps.

So I think it still does not keep the export field order list. Help please

Thanks for your help...
