How to insert multiple files in container field by using a script with validation

Post

Dear Friends,


I have a long list of records and each record has its own file, which i am inserting manually in container field and having a hard time with this tedious task.  All file names are sharing the same name as in the Title field. Example:
Title (text field) - "The Palace" File (container field) - "The Palace.kmz." with an exception of extension (.kmz) at the end.

All the files that i am inserting are in the same folder.  I need a script that should match the file name with Title in the table and insert the corresponding file from the folder into container field accordingly.

I am new to Filemaker and don't know about scripting too.  Please advise how to do this? 

Thank you in advance.
