Title

Open File script step

Post

Working with FMP 11 Advanced (Mac)

     I would like to be able to use the Open File script step to open an existing file in the current folder based on a file name stored in a field in the currently open table.  Right now my only choices seem to be Open File <unknown>, which lets the user select a file from a dialog box or Open File <specify>, which opens a predetermined file by name.   It would be handy as in other areas of FMP to specify the filename "by calculation" (i.e. by the file name contained in a field) but I don't see that option here.  How can I do this?
