BE_ExportFieldContents ( field {; outputPath } )


Exports the contents of the container field to disk at the outputPath specified.

Container fields should be inserted via "Insert File". This provides a similar functionality to the Export Field Contents script step, but is also available via FileMaker Server.


Version : 3.0
4.0 : made the outputPath optional.


Parameters :
field : the content of the command to run.
outputPath : a system file path.  When not supplied the file is written to the temp folder and a path to the file is returned instead.


Result : The path to the file or ? for an error.


Note : that you can convert container types within a container via the BE_ConvertContainer function, so even if you didn't originally insert it via Insert File, it can be converted from an image to a file inside the container field itself.
