Title

triggering a script in another file

Post

I am still fighting this issue:  I occasionally (all to frequently) release a new version of a template and users want to import all their stuff from the old template.  If the old template is sorted, and only displaying a subset of records (say, 25 out of 100) then the import will only get 25 records.  They use a script for importing all the old data, part of which askes them to find the old file from which to import.  I could have the old file contain a script that would show all the records in all the tables in the old template, if I could only figure out how to trigger that script to run on the old file once the user has chosen the file from which to import.

advice?
