script to access external database

I would like to access an external database via a scripted button. I would appreciate someone giving me the instructions on how to do this. To be more clear, the buttons or tabs would be clicked and layout 1 of the external database would become the active window the user could input to that database and then click another tab or button to return to the previous database.

Thanks in advance.

Version: v6.x

Platform: Mac OS X Panther

Is the external DB a FileMaker file?

If so, the last step of the script assigned to the button should do an "Open" of the other database (make sure the open hidden is not selected). In the other database, create an OpeningScript and set the file's preference to run this script when opened. This script sets up the window (e.g. hide status area) and can goto the proper layout and display apropos data.

Using the same technique, a script in this database will have an Open to return to the first database.

Is this what you wanted to do?
