A question about File Relationships


Working fomr FilleMaker 10 Advanced - Mac OS 10.6.8

I can establish a file relastionship form File A to FIle B.  The file updates fine and records the data correctly.  ,,,

Now I need to take File B and send it back to File A to confirm if data in one feild has a data referance within File A -

  • IF it does exist in File A then pass over the referance in FIle B ... and move to the next one
  • If it does not exist then add that one referance to File A. and again move the he next  referance in File B

Might this be done by FIle Relationships or shourd this be properly be done by scripting?

Can any one recommend a scripting to do this - I have tried in the past and the script is ... questionable.  IF you can think of this as the index that is cross-referanced back and forth.
