BE_FileImport ( path {; compressBoolean } )


Imports the contents of the file into a container field or variable, and optionally compresses the field.

This provides a similar functionality to the Insert File script step, but is also available via FileMaker Server.


Version : 3.0
4.0.2 : Renamed from BE_ImportFile


Parameters :
path : the path to locate the file.
compress ( optional ) : True for compression or empty or False for not.


Result : The file.  Usually you would use this function with a Set Field step pointing to a container field.


Also note that you can convert container types within a container via the BE_ConvertContainer function, so you can convert the resulting file to an image if required.
