import script asking for password for every table

I made a script to automate data migration for new versions of a particular FMP solution (so the import is from FMP file to FMP file). In this script, there is a separate Import script step for each table that needs to be migrated, and I'm setting a $path variable so each Import step doesn't ask for the file location.


However, the problem I can't seem to solve is that each Import step asks for the login and password again, each time. So if I'm migrating 10 tables, I have to type the login information 10 times. It's unbelieveably annoying and I can't figure out a way to have the script "remember" the login info for subsequent steps. Has anyone ever dealt with this or have any ideas how I might fix it?
