This seems like a loaded question - is the use going to be cross-platform, because that would certainly add some complexity.

Are the files that you want to print stored in FileMaker - or just references?

Is there any checking to see that the files actually exist? If not, then you might consider the TROI Plug-in - allows you to see that referred to files are actually there.

As to the printing, FileMaker can tell other applications to print files such as PDFs, etc. via Applescript or the equivalent Windows commands - and assuming you can access the files, you can certainly have some kind of loop that works on multiple recordz, fields, etc.

yes- it is cross-platform

they're only file references and I don't even want to bother checking to see if they're there because they definitely should be since an automated script generated them and uploaded them to the containers.

they're mainly pdf and word .doc files..

which Windows scripting language can FileMaker run ? (vBscript ??)

Can anyone help or point me in the right direction for both platforms Applescript and Windows Script?
