Back in August, I reached out for help with outputting Vcards from FileMaker and Douglas Alder was one of several (thanks to you all, btw) who reached out to help. And he was right: it’s way harder than it should be to output to both Mac and Windows, and the biggest issue is with the “Export Field Contents” script step, which does not offer a way to export in any other format other than UTF-16. Which does not work. The file generates fine, but won’t import into your contacts program.
Doug was working a blog post even back then, and kindly provided his example file and some guidance, which helped save the day for me. Thanks, Doug!
I wanted a simple method of adding vCard export capability from my FileMaker databases to get Contact information into my Contacts application. This is my first attempt at Modular FileMaker (as defined at modularfilemaker.org) although I do generally try to make my code as portable as possible.
