Script to open an unrelated solution, then open a layout within that solution.

Post

Hi guys. 
I'm in a bit of a pickle with this one... 
Quick Overview; Client already has a Filemaker Solution which helps run their day to day business. This solution is accessed locally via computer (LAN) and remotely via iPad and computer (WAN)
For the sake of simplicity, we will call this "Solution A"

I have created a new solution (Solution B) for this client for a completely separate purpose. This solution is designed to be a local solution for iPad only, no external tables, no external linking and no syncing required. 

The client has requested the ability to open a specific part of Solution A from Solution B. 
Opening Solution A isn't the problem (open file script step) 
However, we want the script to then send the user directly to a specific layout with (if possible) a small amount of data. 

I wish to keep Solution B completely independent... so that removes the possibility of using a linked table between the two solutions...

Is there any way to do this? Have I missed something basic?

 

Thanks in advance,
Jamie.
