    Unanswered: FMP 7 and external files?

    Hey Peoples!
    How far is it possible to work in FMP 7 with external files?
    I need to look if a file is existant. If yes, delete this file.

    Is that possible with filemaker or do i have to write a C-Programm?

    Definitely. You xneed a plug-in which implements file utilizing functions for you. This plug-in is then used to check for file's presence, move, copy, delete or perform whatever operation on file.

    Is there a special reason why are you afraid of plugins? I'm quite curious about that.

    Hm... i'm not sure why i don't want to use plugins. I think, the main reason is: i don't want to pay money for them. And why the hell i should use plugins if there is another way to do something? And!!! Another big reason: my Boss don't like plugins ^^
