      Performing scripts on FMS on an external hosted file

      Your post

      I am trying to use FMS update an externally hosted file from an internal hosted file unattended.

      After many hours of frustration I have realized that FMS cannot import data from another FileMaker file hosted on another server. 

      I have read many threads about this here and elsewhere.

      I am trying to work around this and was thinking of exporting the data from the external file to a local directory, but I cannot make FileMaker Server to perform any script in the external hosted file without returning the file not found error (100).

      So, can FileMaker Server even do this or do I have to make a VB script with an opener file, exposed account/password and the whole mess?

      Cheers,

      Andreas
