FileMaker Command - Get(FileName)

Igeek take a look at this FileMaker database command.

Returns the name of the currently active file, without the filename extension.

Get ( FileName )


Data type returned 

Originated in version 
6.0 or earlier

If the current calculation is stored and you specify its context, this function will be evaluated based on that context; otherwise, it will be evaluated based on the context of the current window.

•If you use Get(FileName) in a function parameter that requires a filename and the filename contains a period, include the filename extension in the parameter. Otherwise, functions may interpret the period in the filename as the beginning of the filename extension, which can lead to unexpected results.
