Perform Script on Server script doesn't run

Dear FileMaker Pros,


Perform Script on Server (PSoS) doesn't run


I run FMP 13 (on Windows.)  I import records to my Hosting FM Server

from my Client.  Running the script steps from the Client works well,

but its a time consuming task of more than 4 hours; the records are big,

almost a million. And this is a weekly affair.


To save time, I switched the script  to Perform Script on Server,

(wait for completion, unchecked.) The script does not run

Import records, as it did without PSoS.


My script steps on the hosting Server Db: ScriptName:"Import A"

> Go to Layout ["Part_A"]

> Go to Field [Select/perform; Stock_A::Field_A]

> Go to Record /Request/Page[First]

> Import Records [No dialog;"Receive_Gen"Add;Windows ANSI]


My Perform Script on Server on Client:

> Go to Layout ["Part_A"]

>Perform script on Server ["Import_A"]

> Go to Record/Request/Page [Last]

Note: wait for completion, unchecked


Would appreciate your comments.


Thanks in advance
