UID Number Export

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to build a database in Filemaker Pro and link it to Vectorworks.  My goal is to have a simple plot that will carry channel and dmx address information into Filemaker.  


Is it possible to use vectorworks UID (ex. 1000. ) as the primary key between vectorworks and filemaker?   


None of the following record formats contain the UID, or as far as I can tell.




Thanks for any help

I believe it's saved into the unique "name" field which is visible close to the IFC button on the OIP. There are Get/Set functions available for that parameter.


If not you could use VectorMEP's "Organisation - Objects" dialog to find out all available fields attached to an object, including hidden fields which could contain your ID.
