Hi,

 

I'm trying to reform an AppleScript on the Server Side Script and for some reason it outputs an error 3. If i run it on my client computer and add the client directory and file information it will open it but if i try to run it on the server it doesn't even open the Microsoft Excel app from the Server side, which is installed.

 

I'm trying to run this from the server side script.

 

tell application "Microsoft Excel"

      open "/Library/FileMaker Server/Data/Documents/Update/stuff_all.csv"

end tell

 

The stuff_all.csv file is in the Documents/Update location with all access to anyone but for some reason it doesn't even open the Excel App on that server computer that has Filemaker Server running. Please help!
