Scripted Open File and pass it Account and Password?

Is it possible to use the Open File script step while passing an Account name and a Password to the target file?


I see it's possible to open a file in a web browser in such a way that allows passing the account and password as part of a web URL, but that's not what I want, I don't want to involve web.


This is the document I referenced for the web URL technique

Opening shared databases remotely using a URL


For example, I tried this, but it fails with an 802 error:


Set Variable [ $$location ; Value: "fmnet:/" & $account & ":" & $pass & "@" & $server & "/" & $fileName ]

{set up an external data source whose location is $$location and whose name is "ExternalLocation"}

Open File "ExternalLocation".



Thank you
