open file scrip problem

I’m trying to open a FMP file called “Office” with a script within a parent file. The script has two steps: one to open Office the other to run the Startup script in Office.

Open File [ “Office” ]

Perform Script [ “Startup” from file: “Office” ]

I would expect that when the Office file opens the layout defined in Startup would be active since the script ends there. However, the parent file layout remains active.

Also, after I exit FMP and then reopen the parent file, the script “forgets” where the Office file is located and FMP presents a dialog where I have to navigate to the file to find it. It’s almost like the path to the file is not stored in the Open File script step.
