    Hello!
    I'm having a problem, I have a button to export to excel in my layout, and it works perfectly when i open with FM, but when I open it with a browser via web publishing it doesn't work! Does anybody know why this happens? Thanks in advance

    Re: Can't export to excel with web publishing

    If you go into ScriptMaker in FileMaker, you can check a box at the bottom right "Indicate web compatibility". When you do this, all web-incompatible script steps are greyed out. 'Save Records as Excel' is one of these steps.

    Long story short - that step is not web compatible. Same as import and export records.
