Script steps reference

Each script step topic describes what the script step does, and what its options and parameters are. It also shows the format for the script step and provides a usage example.

For information on how to create scripts, see Automating tasks with scripts.

Script step compatibility

The Compatibility section of each topic shows which FileMaker clients and hosts can perform the script step.

  • "Yes" means all features are supported to the extent possible for the platform.
  • "No" means the script step is skipped and returns error 3 ("Command is unavailable"). See Get(LastError) function.
  • "Partial" means the script step is performed, but one or more features don’t work as described. See the Notes section.
