      Applescript only works during day

      Post

      Hi!

       

      I have an odd problem that I have not been able to find an answer for...

       

      I use an applescript to open a filemaker database that is hosted with FileMaker Server. The script runs fine if I initiate it, but when I use iCal or any remote triggered applications, I get an error message "Object Not Found". I have also tried saving the applescript as an application, but this also results with the same error. The script works when I am using the computer- ie, if i set the applescript to run at 1PM and i am using the computer at 1PM, the applescript initiates and runs just fine. I have the energy settings set to never sleep.

       

      Has anyone else had this issue? Is there a simple workaround or fix?

       

      thanks so much!!! 

       

      MacPro 2.8GHz with MacOSX 10.5.8

      FileMaker Pro 9.0v3

       

      AppleScript: 

      with timeout of (30 * 60) seconds

      tell application "FileMaker Pro"

      activate

      getURL "fmp7://login@IP/DBname"

      do script FileMaker script "Import_f32k"

      delay 60

      quit

      end tell

      end timeout
