I am trying to create a text field which will eventually be used for xml export.

I need to be able to create a field containing a string like:

code:


<MOVIE ID="M1" Seq="1" RelPath=".transiston testingproduct002.avi" AbsPath="E:transiston testingproduct002.avi" Description="" LogItem="False" Delay="0" OverrideShowDelay="False" SizeAndPos="" Overpaint="False" AutoReload="True" EraseWhenDone="False" ForceUnload="False" LoopMovie="False"/>

But the quote marks MUST be intact as above. Is their an escape sequence similar to the " or /" used in many other programming languages?

Cheers all,

Joel

Thanks for the tip, everything is working fine now.

Mmmm scripting languages. BTW does anyone else find the fact that the "Specify Calculation" box is not resizable REALLY annoying?

It would take about 5 mins for Filemaker to change.
