I have built a simple calculation that builds a webpage out of field contents in Filemaker Pro.
I need a way to save that text from one master calc field as an html document in a certain folder on my HD.
I image a script that puts contents of clipboard into a text file and appends with .html when saving would work just fine. Only, I don’t have that script.
Anyone have experiece with this?
I greatly appreciate any help you can pass my way!
First, if all you want to do is save the content of the field in a text file, you don’t need to use the clipboard at all (and shouldn’t use the clipboard if you can avoid it).
Something like this should get you started:
tell application "Filemaker Pro"
-- adjust this line as necessary to get the cell contents
set theHTML to contents of cell "calc_field_name" of current record as text
set outputFile to open for access file "Macintosh HD:path:to:output.html" with write permission
write theHTML to outputFile starting at 0
close access outputFile
Thank you for your reply,
However, I had trouble running the script…
I received the following error:
Filemaker Pro got an error: Object is not an element or property of this class
Upon closing that error window I see that the first iteration of word "text’ in the script is highlighted.
The field is a text field in Filemaker Pro.
Also, I had troubling embedding as internal script in Filemaker Pro. Did only as a standalone script in Script Editor.
