The following is a post I pasted here from 2 years ago, it works great, but I only want to plot points for my addresses, not get driving directions to each one. I've tried taking out (d&saddr), all together & bits & pieces of it, but can't figure it out.
Also, are there other options, like zoom level, window size,...
How do I keep it in my filemaker program instead of opening in a browser?
First you need a database with a table that has an address field and a sorting field.
Create a list layout with the 2 fields.
Find all the addresses that you want to include in the map. Use the sort field to specify the order.
An Open Map script should do the following:
Sort the records according to the sort field
Set variable $URL to "http://maps.google.com/maps?d&saddr=" & Substitute ( Address::Address; " "; "+")
[note: saddr is the start address]
Loop through remaining records...
Go to next record (exit after last)
Set $URL & "+to:" & Substitute ( Address::Address; " "; "+")
[note: +to: denotes all additional addresses]
Open URL (No Dialog), $URL
