    Startup file with parameter

    powersystem

      Hi,

       

      is there a way to pass parameter to a FIlemaker file when starting it up from the system or an other application (like Excel)?

       

      what I want to do is like have an URL in a webbrowser passing some parameters

       

      fmp7://serverIP/File.fp7?id=1000

      fmp7://serverIP/File.fp7 id=1000

       

      It is possible to store the parameter in the clipboard and parse it with an startup script, but using the clipboard is not an nice way to do it (deleting the users clipboard)
