Reminder date email question

Forgive me if this has been answered before. I found snippets but not entirely what I'm looking for. I'm also very new at this (scripting).

I'm looking to create a script that will once daily look for any records with a reminder date of the current date (some records will not have a reminder date) and email the user (user being a filed that can be used as the " To: " email option).

I have Outlook setup and talking to FM as I use another script for emailing record info.

I just need to know how to:

A ) Scan records once daily for today's date in a reminder field

B ) When found, email a user with very basic info about that record.

Thanks!

David

You can't do this in FileMaker without a plugin. Check the Plugin Topic Area here at the Forum, or look at what is available at

Yeah, if you want a script to execute at a daily specific time, then use the plugin

But if not you can execute the script upon startup or shutdown. Since you only need to do it once a day would you want to create a script that you can execute when you desire?
