Repetitive Tasks in FM - Automation / Macro?

Post

Hello,

I'm new to FM, wondering if anybody could please help me!
 I am currently sifting through some 9,000 records, open each one individually, performing the same task (three mouse clicks onto several checkboxes), closing it and then repeating the process.

 

Obviously this is extremely boring and takes up a massive amount of time, in this instance, several days. I have used a macro recorder and playback piece of software before and am considering purchasing something like it again, but before I do, I thought I would ask here to see if there was a way of doing this - easily - for somebody with little to know programming / FM experience in Filemaker itself, rather than using a 3rd party program?  

 

If not, could anybody possibly recommend some reliable macro recording & playback software please? Very much appreciate your time. 

 

Thanks!
