Title

filemaker pro 12 get remote url argument applescript syntax

Post

     The following line of applescript causes FileMaker Pro 12 only to bring up its open remote dialog box, as though there were no argument string to be processed.  My database is hosted on the service whose URL appears here.  There is no error message:

      

get remote URL "fmp://shared-hosting-2.filemaker12.com/salescontacts"

     I have tried adding account name and password info, and using variations on the syntax from the Applescript dictionary entry for this command, none of which helps.  here is what the dictionary provides:

get remote URLv : Opens a hosted FileMaker Pro database

get remote URL

     → text : The URL specification for the opened database in the form "[<][URL:]fmp://[[username[:password]@]host]/filename[>]"

      

     what do I need to do, to get the file opened using the script and no manual intervention? and where can I find the explanation for the syntactical elements '<', and 'URL'?
