    Open external file with another application from FMP

      Is it possible to create an AppleScript to open a file in for example Box using something like (tell application "Finder" to open POSIX file "/Users/xxx/my/file/to/open.xyz"), only with a generic user name, or script changing the name to the FMP Account Name. The path after that would be the same. And if so how would be script be written.

          You can always set a start Username and Password on a file that opens up a Dialog in FileMaker where user enters there new username and password for the file and within that script create a new Security Account for that user.

          You can add a parameter to your AppleScript for the name of your file and if you know the file address to the file you can just add the parameter to reach your file.
