If you are on Mac you can create an appleScript/automator which can be
the target application. It can then speak to FileMaker and do whatever
Try the most excellent (and free!) Snap2FM form Full City Consulting. It does exactly what you want as long as you are using FM 12 and up.
I also created an automator plugin that was a little more configurable, but ultimately, I use the above solution most of the time.
thanks for the link and I registered for a trial. But as I love to have the freedom to develop an apporach further I would love to learn more about your automator script.... Ist it possible?
I created an Automator Action in Xcode awhile back. I would be happy to send you the source code (it is written in AppleScript on the back end) if you would like. Send me an e-mail message directly.
