      Importing An External Text File Into A New FMPro Record Automatically

      Post

      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.
