Title

Importing Records directly from the web.

Post

I'm Trying to import a series of records directly from the web.

My current Script is

     Import Records - URL = "http://finance.yahoo.com/d/quotes.csv?s=ADM+APPL&f=l";

I have found how to import this into other programs directly, but it is very cumbersom to import it into another program save it, and then import it into filemaker.

 

So, Does anyone know the syntax within import records for URLS, so it is imported not from the hard drive, but the internet?

 

I though it would be somehting like:

Filewin:http://finance.yahoo.com/d/quotes.csv?s=ADM+APPL&f=l

 

but It does not seem to work. I'm running both mac and PC's.
