Trouble with auto-enter calculations and import

Recommended Posts


I'm trying to set up what I thought was a simple script that imports from one file, does all the auto-enter calculations, and then opens a new file.

The script works like this:

Import ["File1.fp5"]

Insert Text [select, "completed import","1"]

Open ["File2.fp5"]

Now here is my dilemma: The script works flawlessly but only when the checkbox is cleared for "Import auto-enter options while importing"

If the auto-enter checkbox is checked the script will import the data correctly but will then open File2 which immediately closes and then reverts back to the original file within which the script is hosted.

I assume that the script works faster than the auto-enter calculations are able to complete and that FM6 simply closes the new file and reverts back to the original so that the calculations may finish.

Does anyone have any ideas on how I can avoid this?
