"Open File" script step

"Open File" script step


     I have two hosted .fp7 files in FileMaker 11, say File A and File B.

     I open File A with the File B "Open File" script step. This is no problem so far.

     When someone normally just opens File A itself, it normally displays all records from a table (about 50 records).

     What I would like to do differently is, when I open File A from a script in File B, I want it to filter the displayed records from that table to only three specific records.

     Is there a way to do this via a script in File B? Or does File A store whether it was opened by an Open File script step in a way that I can access from a script?

     Thank you!
