Title

Filemaker 'cron' Database

Post

I find myself needing to schedule scripts to run on a 'robot' more and more.  Has anyone come across an FM database that function in a similar way as cron?  Meaning, a table with scripts that need to run, the database containing the script, the time and frequency they need to run, and possibly the username/password with appropriate access to run the script?  Would something like that even be possible to do entirely in Filemaker, or would Applescript (on Mac) be needed?
