export does not export all fields

A script that exports all records, does not inclde every field. Why is this?

The script finds all, then exports and saves to a file but only the first four records are in the text file. The file is saved as tab-delimeted text file, from version 4.1.

Thanks

The records that are exported (as well as the order of the records) are stored in the script as the same export set and order that was last used when the script was built. Perhaps you've noticed that when you enter the script in ScriptMaker and then exit it (assuming that the script itself has an Export step and that the Export step isn't in some sub-script) you get a message asking if you want to keep or replace the export order.

What likely happened is that when you created the script, the last export order had only those four fields in it from your last export. Perform the export manually with the correct field set and order. Then go into ScriptMaker and open the script that actually has the Export Records step. Then click OK and a dialog will come up asking if you want to keep the export order that is currently stored in the script or replace it with the one you just used. Choose to replace and click OK. That should fix the problem.
