Saving and sending records as a snapshot link
You can save a found set of records, called a snapshot link, to capture a found set as it was when you performed the find request. The found set is saved in FileMaker Pro Snapshot Link format (FMPSL) with the filename extension .fmpsl. You can also email an FMPSL file to another person.
The snapshot link includes the current found set of record IDs—including the layout, view, sort order, mode, and toolbar visibility. Snapshot link files can include local or remote records.
Note  A snapshot link does not preserve record data, and opening a snapshot link will not return record data to the state it was in when the snapshot link was created. To preserve record data, you can export records (see Exporting data from FileMaker Pro) or save a copy of the file (see Saving and copying files).
To save records as a snapshot link file:
If you don’t perform a find, all the records in the current table will be included in the FMPSL file.
In Browse mode, Layout mode, or Preview mode, choose File menu > Save/Send Records As > Snapshot Link.
For Save, choose Records being browsed to save the entire found set of records. Or choose Current record to save only the current record (in this case, the found set is not stored, but the current record and all other states, such as the layout, view, and sort order, are stored).
If you want to email the snapshot link, for After saving, select Create email with file as attachment.
Click Save.
To open a snapshot link file:
You can use any method of opening FileMaker Pro files to open a snapshot link file. See Opening files.
The snapshot link file opens in a new window.
If Current record was selected when the snapshot link was created, then only the current record is shown, and the state of the database (for example, the layout, view, and sort order used at the time) is restored. If Records being browsed was selected and the window didn’t have a found set, then only the records that existed at the time are shown. Records created after the snapshot link was created are not shown.
