I have a database that exports credit card information(tab text delimited)  monthly to a constant location that replaces each months information.
Sometimes it does not replace the information from the last month but sometimes it does.
I have to relink the file in the script in order for the replacement to take place.
Any ideas?
Thanks

This is almost a bug.
When it tries to save, if the path is not accessible once, it will self modify the file path in the script; therefore, it saves it to the filemaker folder. So where do you save this file? locally? network folder using a UNC name?
Check if you do not see the missing files in the filemaker folder.

The file is saved locally on the desktop in a folder that never moves or changes name.
I will check the filemaker folder and see if the missing file is there.

This of course eliminates quite a few reasons!
When it does not replace the existing file, it must save somewhere else, otherwise it will issue an error unless you capture them and don't check them after export.
