OPEN AN FM DBASE IN A SPECIFIC ZONE OVER THE NETWORK?

Im trying to open a FileMaker pro 3.0 file over the network through a script, automatically. Heres what my Network looks like:
ex.
ZONE   HOSTNAME FILENAME
AAA            DDD            XXX
                        ZZZ
BBB            EEE            XXX
                        ZZZ
CCC            FFF            XXX
                        ZZZ
etc.
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)
OPTION 2:
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"
OPTION 3:
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?

do you have a duplicate packet or three being sent? or an echo? You'll have to do it in several different scripts each with specific things in each like lets say we have two zones  then you'll need this
when z=zone h= hostname f=filename and p= password
z1+h1+f1+p1
then for the other zone
z2+h2+f2+p2
there is no way you can make it enter it for you or give you a box to do it, you'' have to make different scripts for each one

oh nother idea go to the programing section area on macs. i don't think it can be done with applscript. they are set programs and cannot be modified, maybe you could get someone in the programming section to write you a program and you'd give em points? well if not then on with the applescripts, btw thanks for the grade!
