Hi,

I'm trying to script the export of data to a text file. I don't want the user to see the dialog box. I want the data to be saved in c: of the local machine. But the data keeps getting exported to the c: of the host machine.

How can I force the data to the local drive without user intervention?

Hi Dan!

is this Terminal Sever that is the issue?

otherwise ur doing the right thing

ExportRecords[file_name.txt]

and Specify the location...check the "without dialog"...that's it.

I would suggest u ran an export script 1st with user intervention and then check the dialog box....this way your file will get overwritten and "updated" withoout u having to specify the name or location ever again.

All the best!

Thanks. I think I've got it worked out. Just running this on a 2-machine peer to peer, so it isn't TS.

In the process of playing with this I discoverd some neat tricks you can do with the Windows, DOS (remember that?) and the send message script step. I'll start another thread for that....

Thanks again,

Dan
