Start up script when opening file for data import?

Is it possible for a start up script to determine that the file is being opened so that data in the file can be imported into another file? I have a file that is part of a large file set. As new versions of the file are developed, I have to import the existing data into the new version. The issue is that this is not the main file in the set and the startup script does a a fair amount of work adn tries to open the main file if it is opened. When I need to do this, currently I open the file and disable the startup script, then close, and open the new main version. Then finally I can do the import. I would like to have the startup script determine that it has been opened so that the data can be imported by another file and cancel the rest of the startup script.

 

Thanks
