BE_ExportFieldContents

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

Parameters :
field : the content of the command to run.
outputPath : a system file path.

Result : empty string for success, or ? for failure. Error codes can be retrieved with BE_GetLastError.

Also 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.

    This function appears to return an empty string for success, not 0.
