Hello.

With this script :

tell application "FileMaker Pro 5.5"

activate

open "HD:Documents:FileMaker:File.fp5" with password "password"

end tell

I open a FileMaker document using a password.

Is it possible to open this file and not perform the FileMaker script whose be selected in the document preferences to be perform when opening the file.

Yes, create a dummy FM file with 1) a relationship to the file to be opened (I use a "Constant = 1" field on both sides) and 2) a related field from the file to be opened on the layout the dummy file opens to. The dummy file can also autoenter the password for you.
