FILEMAKER: The Get(TemporaryPath) Function

From Dwayne Wright

Introduced With FileMaker 9
Returns A Text Result

The Get(TemporaryPath) function will return the text of the path to the current OS user’s temporary folder commonly used by FileMaker Pro. This is handy when you are importing and exporting routines and want to have those files in a place that shouldn’t disrupt anything else on that users machine.
