FMP Tadpole challenge #1: Linking files

Hi,

I have been given a mission - to link/embed a large number of pdf documents (in excess of 15,000) to a filemaker database. I have cleverly figured out how to do this (I am but a grasshopper in the FMP world), however I have to do it manually, one file at a time (brilliant). I have been working with FMP 3 but am about to upgrade to FMP 5. So without further ado, ladies and gentlemen, here is today's FMP tadpole challenge:

Does FMP5 or alternatively a plug-in (Troi) allow me to import and link/embed files en masse? The pdf file names are sequentially numbered and based upon an id number in the Filemaker database.

Is it possible to write a script that will auto allocate these files to the database by reconciling the pdf file name with the id field?

Does anyone have any suggestions about how I should go about my mission?

Thanks!!! from the bottom of the pond.
