Hello all,

I have encountered a slight problem. I need to export a series of found images into a new user created folder in a specified location. I tried the troi plug-in, but with no success. However, I did get the create new folder script to function. Do I need to export the file path to a new file and then somehow reference that file to pull the specified images? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Again

If you have the "new folder" script working, then you can just loop through the found set and use the "Export Field Content" script step on each record. Since you're using FM8 you can use a variable in the Output dialog so you can have a variable that points to the path of your new folder.

Just remember that the variable holding the path needs the path in FM syntax, not in OS syntax.

Check the FM help file for "variables".

Since you have the path of the new folder available in your FM record, you can set a variable to it and a name for the file, then use the variable in the Export Field Content Script.
