I have made a button to export records and some specified fields to an excel file on my desktop - the button and associated script works fine for me ( with administrator privileges) but it doesn't work for other users - they get the error message 'file is locked or in use' - can anyone tell me if I have made an error in the way the script works or is it a feature of Filemaker that you cannot make a button to export records?

My script is very simple ->

Export Records [Restore, "issue selection report.csv"]

Other users can use File > Export records OK, but aren't successful using my button.

Grateful for any help

Carol

... Most likely the file path is invalid? I.e. your desktop path is likely to be:

C:Documents and SettingsCarrol WilliamsDesktopyourfilehere.csv

Where as another users might be:

C:Documents and SettingsAlex BabkovDesktopyourfilehere.csv
