Automating spell check

Question asked by user5531 on May 14, 2015

Hi Everyone

 

I am trying to write a script that steps through each record and spell checks a field. If the field has no errors, i'd like the script to move on to the next record.

 

Then, if it hits a record that needs 'correcting' it should throw the normal spell check window.

 

So, I have been trying to find out what i can control programatically from the spell check in Filemaker but can't seem to find any info/error codes or script results.

 

Has anyone done this before? Or is it just something I should do elsewhere (like export to excel and then re-import the data)?

 

Any and all suggestions welcome.
