Auto Insert File into a Container Field without knowing the filename in advance

Is there a way to auto insert a file into a container field without knowing the filename in advance ?


Basically I have folders ( which are set as variables by an existing script ) which have a single file in them. The filenames are random in nature.


I need to insert the file in a container field ( reference only ) and have filemaker select the single file from the folder specificed ( by the variable ) and reference this single file without any user interaction.


Is this possible ?


I am using FileMaker Pro Advanced 11 and the above only needs to apply on a mac.


Hope the above makes some kind of sense . . . . .
