Documenting Scripts

I would like to include the Scripts, as text, in documentation of my database.

How can I get the scripts to be saved to a text file rather than a postscript file?

Does anyone know of a script that can access the scripts of a database and save them to a text field?

I am using FMP 3.0v5

You can print out any script from within filemaker. Simply go to the print window, and you can select from current file, all files etc. One of those items is scripts, and another is fields. In FM 3 that is the only way to get to them that I know of. But it works pretty good, and of course you can call for any one single script whenever you need it.

That print method works for FMPro 4.x as well. Additionally, you can always take screen shots and make them into a Paint or other image type file for use in a global field; or converted (.jpg, .gif) which can then be referenced as such to meet your web needs.

Good Luck, Peace,

Thanks for your answers, but what I really want is a process that will provide a text file containing all the script information. The print command will either print a hard copy or will allow me to save the script information as a postscript file, which is essentially unusable for documentation pruposes.

I want the text file so that I can include it in a report.

try using winfax pro or another type of fax package the package must support OCR

send the fax to yourself, with your modem

disconnected, save it, then run OCR

you will have to reformat text to suit and check it against original script.

hope i've helped, good luck its a pain.
