Have you tried connecting the script to storing a file refrerence in a container field the select file dialog should be the same and allow you to actually do some validation as to the validity of the import file before moving on to importing.
Its just a thought have not tried it myself at this point but would think it should work
You could use Insert File to have the user select the file to be inserted (as reference only) into a global container. Then take the path from there.
A plugin (or Applescript on a Mac) would probably be more elegant.
That's perfect for what I'm looking for. Thanks!
When I try this method, leaving the file name empty expecting FM Pro to query me for a file name, it does not make any query, it just gives me an error about not being able to find the file.
