    Unanswered: properties of objects

    Is it possible to examine the properties of an object that is linked in filemaker6 via OLE. I have pdf docs that are linked in a filemaker database and I need to access/extract the filepaths. The object are in a container in FM6 and container attributes can't be exported.

    thanks

    I do this all the time in FMP6 with the Troi File Plug-in but it's much easier in FMP7.

    In FMP7:
    Use the Get(Filepath) script step, either in a script or as part of a field definition. I would describe a non-indexed "Calculation" field which automaticaly updates.

    Troi plugin

    I don't have access to FM7, but you say that the Troi plugin works for FM6. Alright, I'll try it - I 've been working on the for quite a while. I hope this solves the problem.

    Thanks a million,

    Peace
