Title

Scripting the Open of a File in Go

Post

It's easy to open a File in Go using Open File...  Until you, or I rather, try to use a variable in that step.

----

Open File ("MyFile") works when you've drilled down, etc.  Open File ($_my_file_path ) doesn't want to work when the variable is inserted inside the dialog window. 

So, is there somewhat to make a variable work if inserted in the dialog so "MyFile" contains the variable in the dialog?

----

Or, Open URL works just fine with Filemaker Pro 12 when the file is in the same folder as the active file. Open URL ("MyFile.fmp12") opens that file without problem. Until I try it in Go then pfffftttt...

I have tried dozens and perhaps hundreds of variations and still cannot find one method using a script to open a FileMarer File in the Go 12 directory using a variable.

Help appreciated...

-----

To clarify, I a want to open a file using my variable with a step such as Open File Using Variable ( $$_variable)...
