osx script automation

I have a script creates daily pdf reports and sends as email to managers. Unfortunately save as PDF is not supported on Server.

 

 

My solution is a new fmp file that trigers report script on startup, and close FileMaker after reporting script is done. In windows machines the file is started by "task schedlule" in Windows.

 

 

I want to use same method in Mac OSX. I have created automator workflow. It opens my starter files when I double click it. I also added my workflow to iCal to run at 8:00 pm. When I connected to Server machine with screen sharing, it is ok, the workflow starts the file and run my reporting script. But when I disconnect from the server iCal does not triger the workflow.

 

 

Is there any alternative to open my filemaker file in daily periods?
