Title

Creating a script in Filemaker to plot multiple addresses

Post

I need a script that can plot a map of multiple addresses from a found set of records in a web browser.  I have found an old post that says it can give driving directions which I have included below (I would prefer to plot them rather than show driving directions), however, my script opens the first address and then opens another window that is a failed URL.  I am not sure what to use for "Set $URL" I am using "Set Variable URL"

 Can anyone help with this.

 

An Open Map script should do the following:

 

Sort the records according to the sort field

Set variable $URL to "http://maps.google.com/maps?d&saddr="  & Substitute ( Address::Address; " "; "+")

[note: saddr is the start address]

Loop through remaining records...

Go to next record (exit after last)

Set $URL & "+to:"  & Substitute ( Address::Address; " "; "+")

[note: +to: denotes all additional addresses]

End loop.

Open URL (No Dialog), $URL
