FMP 11 advanced/MAC OS10.5.8 - insert multiple files from a folder in sequential records

Post

I am running FMP11 Advanced on FMP11 Server on a MAC internal network running OS10.5.....

 

I have a folder of files that are non standard format (*.abi) that I would like to import into a database as individual records.  I devised a script to import .txt files using "import records", but I cannot seem to script it to insert files.  I even tried applescripting to rename the folder of files as .tiff files to trick FMP into allowing me to use "import records script".  It works but seems very cumbersome and inefficient.  Any suggestions on how to step through a series of files or folders and "insert files"  would be greatly appreciated.

 

Cheers.
