Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)
This function will take the fully qualified field name of the container field, and the new file name and will rename the file that is contained in the container. Because it uses the Base64 functions, it is a little slow, so it might be best practice to Perform Script On Server. If the containers are compressed, you need to add a .gz to the end of the new file name in order to make it work correctly.
Parameters: Fully Qualified Field Name of Container, New Name of File

|Wonderful find. It even works with externally stored containers. It changes the internally stored name as well as the name of the document itself. 5 Stars|

|Not sure what you mean. You will need FileMaker Advanced to import the custom function into your file. Then in your script, do a set field command to the container field. In the calculation box, use the name of the Custom Function, and give it the parameters as shown above.|
