I'm trying to use a script to Insert File from a specific AFP share into a container field. Every time I try, I get a 100 error (File is missing) from Filemaker. If i change the path to a local file, it works fine.
I've tried hard-coding the path; using a variable; using a global field as a reference.
I've also tried all the permutations of the path according to filemaker's requirements...
filemac:/<path to file>, file:/<path to file>, using /Volumes, /ip address of the share, etc. For example: "filemac:/Volumes/Folder one/Folder two/filename.pdf", etc.
No matter what I try, I get the 100 error.

I have an animated GIF (spinner icon) in a web viewer that I display while running a script to show the system is busy. One of the script steps inserts a file as a reference. This step takes about 5 to 10 seconds to complete. I have noticed that if the file path uses an address with a mapped drive it is much quicker than a UNC address, unfortunately I need to use a UNC file path. When the script gets to the insert file as reference it stops the animated gif and causes the web viewer to go blank until the insert file step completes. Any ideas on a fix to keep the GIF animated while the insert file as reference completes or any other solutions?
Thanks for your help
I can not for the life of me get this script step to work when defining a specific volume. I am simply trying to insert a document with this path -
It only appears as though this script step seems to work when using the Get(DesktopPath) or Get(DocumentsPath) ahead of the file name. Please tell me this is not the case.
There error I am receiving is that it cannot find the file, thus I get the dialog box to locate it. I can manually insert (without using the script) without issue. Too many frustrating hours on this, and I bet it is something simple.
Thanks in advance,
I have a file with 'Check OUT' and 'Check In' functionality.
I 'Check Out' a file from a container field to temp storage using 'Export Field Content' and 'Check In' from the same location(temp storage) using 'Insert File' after making changes.
If I Check Out an Excel or Word file, and try to 'Check In' while the 'Checked Out' file is still open, I get the error 'This file is locked or in use.' (please refer screenshot) but the script does not throw any FileMaker error.(It works fine with Text file)
How can I capture the error if file is open and FileMaker can not perform 'Insert File'? ( So that I can avoid setting flag fields)
I am using Windows 7 and FM Pro Advance 12.
I haveÂ attachedÂ a sample file.

I'm creating a IWP database of children's games.The games have worksheets which are displayed as images in a container field. In IWP, these images can't be downloaded to the user unless I Insert the image as a file (not stored a reference) in another field. I've got 1000's of worksheets so is there a script I can make that will essentially;
Export field contents ('IMAGE' field; of Worksheet image.gif, to the temp folder)
Insert file (into 'FILE HOLDER' field;of .gif just exported, don't store as reference)
I have tried for two days to get this working, but I just can't do it.
Or is there another way for the IWP client to download the image apart from what I am trying to do or "right-click, save image as"
Please help. I am tearing my hair out
Thanks so much in advance
