We have a volunteer database built in FileMaker Pro 10. We need to extract the photos ONLY for each volunteer, and there are 2960 of them. How can I do this automatically. Please advice! Thanks!

HLT288, were you able to implement this export?

Commented:
So far no. The only response I have received is that it DID NOT work. We have another programmer taking a swing at it.

The new programmer will be using a PC and a Mac. He will download the database and then try it.

It scripting solution above should work on both Mac or Windows.

If you are still having a problem, post an example file. If you are using FileMaker Advanced, you can use the script debugger to help identify where the error is occurring. You can also clarify if you are  using multiple images per record, what naming convention you are using to name the exported images and what the file path is to the save location.
