Title

Multiple Database files and and passing parameters to other databases.

Post

I've have many non-related databases (by design), but occassionally I want to pass a variable (or many) to that database and run a script within that structure.  I understand the basic functions of parameter passing, and can do so by "performing script" with the parameter box filled (i've figured out a way to pass multiple parameters and then parse on the other side too).  But I can't seem to access another database with open database command and also pass a parameter.

Anyone out there have any suggestions?  I know how to make this work when I identified the database as an external souce, and also have created a relationship, but my problem stems from no-related fields within both databases (again by design).

I'm using Filemaker Pro 11 Advanced on Mac. 

Thanks in advance for your help.
