Exporting to text file

    Actually I don’t know, id this is a feature request or if I just do not see the way, how to do it right now:

    Our task is to export a text file out of a field of a record.

    Concrete: I made a script field, that produces the complete code for a Vcard. So, until now, I copy the produced code/text to the clipboard, create a text file on the mac, copy the clipboard’s content into the text file, change the text file’s extention from “.txt” to “.vcf”. Than, finally(!), I can drag that VCARD to the Addressbook.

    So, now, I am looking for a way to save the steps in the middle. It would be so great if a could (maybe triggered by a script) force tapforms to export the content of a record’s field to a file and chose the filenames ending/extension directly.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance,

    The Script engine doesn’t support reading or writing directly to files in the file system. It can only write to records.

    You could export as a CSV file perhaps. I know that vCard files can contain multiple vCards within the same file. Maybe if the data was structured properly enough then you could achieve this.
