reading values from unrelated file


FileMaker Pro


11 pro advanced

Operating system version

windows vista

Description of the issue

I am new to filemaker, but I have been programming for many years. I do not know how can I read some parameters from a different unrelated file to use for calculations in scripts while the layout I am working with allows me only to talk to the source files and related ones.
I have about 40 tables in th system I am trying to rewrite and it is unreasonable to duplicate fields in all tables and also the paramters files cannot be linked in a relation to others.
Any hints?
