? I need button to open a different db

I have built a series of databases that work together to make one complete solution. The application has 3 different contact rolodexes as well as tape database. I want to place a button in each db that when pressed will open up the specified db. I have tried several of the provided button actions and none seem to cover this. Anybody know how to accomplish this?

Here is the script that I have written, it does everything I want it to do except actually bring the document to the front.

Open ["contact.fp5]

Go to Layout ["form"]

Show All Records

Refresh Window [bring to front]

It opens the contact file

Goes to the Form Layout

Showing All Records

But, it stays in the background rather than overtaking the current file.

Any ideas...

The script must end in the target file. Therefore, create a script in the file contact.fp5 that takes you to the desired layout and, just to be sure, use "halt script" as the last step. Then, create a script in your original file that executes this script as an "External script".
