I just added the FileMaker Pro Action Pack, and built an Automator workflow which is:

- Get Selected Mail Items [Mail]

- Display Mail Messages [Mail]

- Combine Mail Messages [Mail]

- Copy to Clipboard [system]

- Perform FileMaker Script [FileMaker]

The last Action calls a FM script which Pastes without style into a field. The FM script works by itself in FM when I've copied text in FileMaker (to the clipboard) and run it. The Mail and System Automator Actions appear to work (but the FM Action doesn't) -- when I run the workflow, and then afterwards manually Paste into a TextEdit document, I get the expected results. When I try to paste or paste without style manually into FM, it fails. The clipboard seems to be in a format FileMaker is rejecting, yet the output of Combine Mail Messages is listed in Automator as "text".
