Title

passing a filepath/file to the import dialogue box via scripting.

Post

First,

A Big thanks to PhilModJunk.   I'm a sometimes user of this forum but I'm always impressed with the care he takes to answer ongoing concerns.

Second my problem:

Daily, I have data that I need to import into a filemaker database and it comes to me as a series of text files.

text_01

text_02

text_03

etc.

I've scripted a way to store the filepath/filename necessary for import and I'm confident I can loop it until the list is exhausted, but I don't see any way to "paste" it into the import dialogues.   Ideally, I'd be able to add all of the text files to this dialogue box at once, but I cannot.

Filemaker 11 Mac.    Thanks!
