Importing: Checking for records to import

I have records that need to be imported. They are from up to 8 tables, each with its own file and all the files are in a specified 'Import' folder. It's been previously suggested (https://community.filemaker.com/thread/162262?q=Importing:%20Checking ) using a Base Elements plug in. To simplify maintenance (ie. not need separate plug ins for Mac, 32 & 64 bit), is there a method to check for records if I have a the record's filepath?

 

I'd considered 'get(foundcount)>0' to trigger import, but I've not got it to work yet.
