Choosing which external file to run a script

I have not found anything in my search, so I thought I'd ask here. I have a need to enact a script on an external file which, if it was always the same file, easy enough. But based on circumstances, I may want to activate the script on one of 6 different external files each of which has the same named script. Just like I can set a path to locate an external file programmatically, can I select the external file for the Perform Script the same way? My experimentation with variables, etc have all failed. I can use a long IF statement to match the filename calculated with one of every possible files set up as an external relationship, but this requires an Admin with FMPro skills to go in and make updates. I'd much prefer that the client did this on their own.


Thanks in advance,
