Specifying a fm file.

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to specify a specific File Maker file or will applescript simply affect the current file. Instead of:

tell application "FileMaker Pro" to do script "Send All Mail"

could I do something like:

tell application "FileMaker Pro" to do script "MemoLog.fp5:Send All Mail"

Or something to that effect.

Thanks

If the database is already open you can use the following:

code:

tell document "MemoLog.fp5" of app "FileMaker Pro"

do script FileMaker script "Send All Mail"

end tell


If it's not already open, then:

code:

tell app "FileMaker Pro"

open document "MemoLog.fp5"

tell document "MemoLog.fp5"

do script FileMaker script "Send All Mail"

end tell

end tell
