I have a question about running scripts on a schedule using FileMaker Server.


From what I can see, it seems that FileMaker Server will only run AppleScripts on a schedule.


I need to write an AppleScript that will run a script within a database. FileMaker server will then activeate this AppleScript on a regular schedule, I hope.


Does anyone have any suggestions? I'd really like ideas on writing the AppleScript

tell application "FileMaker Pro"

with timeout of 10000 seconds

open {alias "Macintosh HD:Desktop Folder:YOUR DataBase:DATABASE-NAME"} with password "*****"(if you have a password)

do script "SOME_SCRIPT"


end timeout

end tell


tell application "Finder"

open {alias "Macintosh HD:Desktop Folder:FileMaker Server"}

end tell
