Hello -

Apologies if there is an answer to this already - I've looked but not found. I would like to use a Filemaker database to store references to Applescripts. Nothing fancy, just something allowing me to keep a little extra metadata about the scripts. Even the Filemaker Document Library template should work fine. Here's the catch: I would like to import a folder full of scripts all at once and match them up to the container field, the path field, the filename field etc (just like with pictures/movies) but I don't see a way to do that. Does anyone know if there is a way to bulk/batch import files other than image files?

Thanks much.

I have similar problem, only need to create references in container fields to thousands of non-.txt documents, so that double click will open word docs, pdf files, Outlook files, etc. Individual inserts work fine, but need to be able to do this using a folder of files as source, in batch, to populate and refresh whole table periodically. This seems like it would be a common need, but I can't find a way to do it within FM 8.5. Help!
