Snapshot link as URL?

Recommended Posts

Greetings FileMakerers!

Is there any way to get the functionality of a snapshot link, but in the form of a URL (i.e. a text string) rather than a file? If it's the only option, I know I can get a file:/// URL to the snapshot file, but I'd rather not have to keep that around to clutter up my filesystem.

Mucho thanko!

The short answer is no. The file contains XML. That is what FileMaker uses restored the found set stored in the file.

The longer answer is, maybe. You could store the file somewhere ( secure ), and reference it that way. Or possibly store it right in FileMaker. Export the file to a temp folder, and blow it away when you are done.
