Opening multiple Filemaker databases with applescript

Post

Afternoon,

 

I'm trying to write an apple script to open multiple fp7's with provided logins. My script is a s follows;

 

setthefolderto "Mac:Users:matthewmackay:Desktop:Apple Script"

tellapplication "Finder"

set numberoffiles to count every file in folderthefolder

setthefilestothefilesoffolderthefolderwhosenamecontains ".fp7"

repeatwiththisfileinthefiles

tellapplication "FileMaker Pro Advanced"

open thisfile for Accounts "......." with passwords ".........."

endtell

endrepeat

endtell


It opens the first file in the folder but no other ones, I've posted on apple scripter forums as well but thought I'd try on here as well.

 

cheers
