    Use System Formats



      Use System Formats


      FileMaker Pro



      Operating system version


      Description of the issue

      i have to import filemaker pro fp5 from another computer running mac os x
      into mysql on filemaker pro 6 running on mac os x.
      WHen loading the file in File maker pro , it says
      The date and time formats associated with .... are different than the current
      system settings. DO you wish to use the system settings for data entry? Yes / No

      We checked and cannot find any.

      I can answer No to the dialog and i can further use this fp5 . But the issue is the
      file should be loaded from an applescript. How can i force the applescript
      file open command to switch off the System Formats.

      The osacript command now looks like this:
      tell application "Filemaker Pro"
      set filelocations ....
        open "HD1:......." with password "xxxx"
      end tell

      Can i specify here somehow the open command should not display the dialog box?

      best regards
