I have a FM 8.0 server and client system on which I want to run a Filemaker script every night at 11 pm to email reminders to people. My question is what is the best way to do it? I don't believe FM Server 8.0 has any way to do it nor do I want to have to leave a client open somewhere. Any ideas?

I'd still recommend using a separate workstation to run this on.

And I wouldn't use a FM file with an onOpen script unless the process is not really critical.

Better approach is to use a VBscript to launch FM, open the FM file, run the script, and close everything back up (including shutting down the machine if needed). The VBscript will give you a lot more power in checking for errors and logging them.
