External Database record positioning

External Database record positioning


Using Filemaker Pro 9 advanced:

  Have a tab control in the header area (for table view).  Each tab has a button that can
 call script "Maps" to open an external data base.  The external data base has just 2 fields:

 Index and Container.  The container holds .jpg images.  When the external database is

 opened, it nicely shows just one .jpg image (in form mode).  After viewing the .jpg image,

 the user can close its window.  However, I can't get the external data base to show the

 correct record, based upon which tab is showing in the main database.  (It can be set

 manually, but that's not what I want.)


 The main database and the external database have no relationships

 although the external database IS included in the relationships window

 of the main database.  Is there a way to have a start-up script run in

 the external database based on a relationship ?  Thanks for your help.  CountryBoy1
