    How to copy/paste a script into Filemaker pro 11?

    blokdijk

      Is there a way to copy/past a script like this one, or is the only way creating the individual steps via the panel?

       

      1. Define the script - In Manage Scripts, define the Find Duplicates script:

        Show All Records
        Sort Records [Specify sort order, Perform without dialog] Sort by Client ID in ascending order
        Go to Record/Request/Page [First]
        Replace Field Contents [Perform without dialog, Specify target field 'Mark', " "]
        Loop
        Set Variable[$id,'ClientID']
        Go to Record/Request/Page [Next, Exit after last]
        If ['$id = ClientID']
        Set Field ['Mark', '"X"']
        Else
        Set Variable[$id,'ClientID']
        End If
        End Loop
        Perform Find [Restore] Find records when Mark = X
