Hello all,

I'm putting together a similar Applescript using the getURL command from the previous topic.

I'm using this syntax:

getURL "FMP7://[username]:[password]@[iP Address]/[Database name]"

The problem I'm having is that our database does not require a username. So if I run this command:

getURL "FMP7://:[email protected]/database.fp7"

It brings me directly to a login screen and doesn't login automatically for me. If I try any username other than a blank it won't let me login.

Does anyone know how to pass a blank username in the url?

Not sure you can have a blank user name WITH a password. Is this the same as a "guest" account?

Maybe you can create a "guest" account that does the automatic login.

I tried the username "Guest" and that didn't work. I don't have the permissions to create a guest user account in our database.

What if I try to pass an ascii or html null character in the URL??

It may sound a little ridiculous but I'm just trying to brain storm ideas. Thoughts?

NVM I figured it out. I checked the access privileges and it turns out the account indeed has a username which isn't blank. For some strange reason you can login to the database with a blank username. I assume it has something to do with the fact that this database was converted from 6 to 8.
