Chapter 20. Getting Data Out of FileMaker > Exporting with Layout Formatting

Exporting with Layout Formatting

Many of FileMaker's export formats can be set to use the format settings of the layout from which you're exporting. That means, for example, that if you have a date field that contains the value 11/17/2004, and it's set to display as Wednesday, November 17, 2004, you can enable the Apply Current Layout's Data Formatting to Exported Data option in the Specify Field Order for Export dialog, and then the date value is exported in that format. Special formatting options applied to date, time, or number fields are carried through in the export if this option has been enabled. The formatting options also apply to calculated fields with date, time, or number results.

NOTE

In Layout mode you can apply date and time formatting to a time stamp field, but those settings are carried through in an export only if you use the XML format.
