Thank you for your post.
A Server side script cannot be executed by a client. You would have to go into Admin Console, select Schedules, select the particular schedule and execute "Run a Schedule now".
Another option would be to have the text file built on the local drive (or network drive), and then followed by an import, which you already mentioned you don't want.

I could copy your post and paste it into the web form, but there are additional questions asked that only you can answer.
When entering the suggestion, please explain why you need this to occur. I have noticed that Development and Product Management tend to pay more attention to these requests when there are real-life examples.
I have need of this ability with FM 12 Server Advanced.
Is it possible to perform this action FM 12 Server Advanced with a Scheduled Script at a specific time?
The procedure I was going to use has the script
FIND ALL, DELETE ALL,
Import a text file that is saved in a director on the Server, everyday Tuesday - Saturday @ 1:00 AM
