Hi

I'm scripting an export for a system where several users will all be exporting their files to a central system. Rather than setting up all the databases individually, I want the script to say - export to a file and call it "Parish acronym" (field) plus "xmlexport" (real text). i.e. when all the files reach the other end they will be tagged with their own acronym.

Is there a way to do that and still have the export run automatically with no dialog box?

Rosie.

If they're all saving in the same location then this won't work, but if you have them export to their own hard disk first (with the name hard coded in the FM script) then you can fire of a Send Message script step to rename the export to the name you specify (based on field data) and then move the file to the network share. All with command lines through Send Message.

Or use a file plugin.
