Change Password
Changes the password for the current account.
Change Password [Old Password: <old password>;
New Password: <new password>; No dialog]
Click Specify to display the “Change Password” Options dialog box, where you can set the following options.
Old Password is the old password for the current account. You can enter literal text or click Specify to generate the password from a calculation.
New Password is the new password for the current account. You can enter literal text or click Specify to create a new password from a calculation.
Perform without dialog prevents the Change Password dialog box from displaying when the script step executes. When this option is selected, FileMaker Pro uses the literal password information stored with the script step, or generates a new password based on a calculation.
Where the script step runs 
FileMaker Pro 
FileMaker Server scheduled script 
FileMaker Go

This script step displays the Change Password dialog box, unless Perform without dialog is selected. Change Password allows you to change your password but not your access privileges.
Unless the Set Error Capture script step has enabled error capture, users get five attempts to change their password.
