Title

Sending an event using a file within the database

Post

I'm Using Filemaker 10.0v3 on XP and would like to know if it is possible to use a script to trigger the opening of a batch file that is stored in the database.

e.g.

I have a Table of Customers and some of the fields in this table contain .bat files that consist of simply a ping command pinging some of the devices of that customer and exporting the result.

I would like to make a script that triggers these batch files but only triggers the files that are in the current selected record of this customer.

Am I asking too much of this already great  program?
