Save Records As Excel
Saves records to a specified Excel worksheet.
Save Records As Excel [Restore; No dialog; “<output filename>”; Automatically open; Create email; Records being browsed/Current record]
Note  In order to save records as a Microsoft Excel worksheet, your privilege set must include Allow exporting, or you must select Run script with full access privileges in the Edit Script dialog box.
Perform without dialog prevents the Excel Options dialog box from displaying as the script step executes if you have already specified a file. If you have not specified a file, the Save Records as Excel dialog box displays as the script step executes, but the Excel Options dialog box is not displayed.
Select Specify output file or click Specify to display a dialog box where you can specify the file path. Choose the folder you want to export to, or type the file path directly into the list. Specify one path per line. FileMaker Pro will use the first path it locates. See Creating file paths. You can choose to Automatically open file or choose to Create email with file as attachment to create a blank email with the Excel file as an attachment.
If FileMaker Pro executes a script that does not specify an absolute path, and the database file containing the script is hosted, the path is assumed to be the current user’s Documents folder.
Select Specify options or click Specify to display the "Save Records as Excel" Options dialog box. From the Save list, choose Records being browsed or Current record. Specify whether the values in the first row should be used as field names or as data. For Worksheet, Title, Subject, and Author, you can enter text directly, or click Specify to enter a field name or values from a calculation.
