Importing by specific filename

Recommended Posts

Is there any way to use a variable in the pathname of the file i'm going to import? And if I can't, I can make a windows script that will rename the file to something before importing, but how can I get the variable from filemaker to my windows script so that it knows which file to rename?

Also, i'm using fm7, so if this is already a feature in 8 or above, let me know.

Yep, it is a feature of 8+. It's a new script step called Set Variable. There's a bunch of posts here to show how to use it. Well worth the upgrade.

Ok, thanks. I'll look into an upgrade. In the meanwhile, the export field contents script should work.
