Transfer Pics from FM to AddressBook
« on: January 10, 2013, 12:22:58 AM »
It's not the most important part of syncing the databases - but it were nice to transfer all pics stored in the FileMaker-database to Apple addressbook.
But the command "PCAB SetImage" only produces an empty result in the Apple addressbook field for Pics. Is there a workaround for transferring pics? Is there a conversion needed before??

I tried it - the same results.
But I found antoher thing: the success depends on the way how the pic was added in the FM database:

(1) using primary the submenu "insert picture" within the FM-media container the following export to Apple address book by AdBk-Maniulator works fine

(2) using copy & paste (e.g. from a preview) to insert a pic into the FM-media container the following export to Apple address book by AdBk-Maniulator fails. The pic is visible in FileMaker, but the field in Apple AdBk is empty.

I think, there are different data-types within FileMaker to store the pic in the different ways.
