Importing An External Text File Into A New FMPro Record Automatically
Does anyone know the mechanics of how I could automatically script the import of a group of text files into Filemaker where the content of each external file becomes a new Filemaker record containing a text field that receives the external file's text ?
I'm working on getting dictated patient visit notes that are created by Dragon Medical Dictation Software into my system. Each Dragon file created represents 1 patient dictation. So, once I get the external file's text into a Filemaker record, it's a cinch to do further action on it thru internal calculation and scripting. I just don't know (and neither did Filemaker Tech Support) how to bring something like this in.

Try using Import Records with the Folder option to import all text files found in a particular folder. You can look up the available options for this in FileMaker help.
