OPEN AN FM DBASE IN A SPECIFIC ZONE OVER THE NETWORK?
Posted on 1997-06-17
Im trying to open a FileMaker pro 3.0 file over the network through a script, automatically. Heres what my Network looks like:
ZONE HOSTNAME FILENAME
AAA DDD XXX
BBB EEE XXX
CCC FFF XXX
I want to specify in 4 fields in my database, the ZONE, HOSTNAME, FILENAME and PASSWORD for the file to be opened and I want it to open automatically.
OPTION 1: With the Open command in Scriptmaker I cannot do all that. (You cant specify the password at all)
With the open command in an applescript I can do nearly all of it, but I cannot specify the Zone/Hostname. You see, I have loads of hosts in DIFFERENT zones which the SAME hostname hosting files with the SAME names. I tried
open "XXX" with password "blabla" works, and opens the file XXX IN MY CURRENT ZONE
The following do *NOT* work
open "AAA::DDD:XXX" with password "blabla"
open "AAA:DDD:XXX" with password "blabla"
open "AAA::XXX" with password "blabla"
open "AAA:XXX" with password "blabla"
So we tried the GETURL apple event and put it all on TCP/IP. That works GREAT, just now, It blocks asking for the right password when opening a file across the network and I cannot specify the pasword to use with the GETURL event.
What is a man to do?
