      Linking files in a second application to a Filemaker record

      Post

      Hi everyone,

      One of my colleagues is trying to create a database for our lab stock of chemicals.

      He has already created the record for each of the chemicals and he now wants to create a link between each of the filemaker records and a file for each chemical in another application. He is having trouble doing this. He has added a button with "send event" , which creates a link to the second application, but the link does not enable us to open all of the records - instead the link only enables us to open one file. Is there a script that we would need to create so that when the name of the chemical changes, the name of the file that opens in the second application will also change?  Can anyone help us to do this?

      Thanks for any help that you can provide.

      Romain
