I’ve made a filemaker database to help our art department organize and keep up with our various layouts and Marcomm materials. Without getting into the gory details, it has a screen shot, designer name, dates, etc. It also has the file name that the document is saved as.
Since Filemaker can run an applescript via a button, I would like to make a script that when a user clicks on a button under the filename field, it opens up a finder FIND (apple+F) enters the file name, and runs a search in “everywhere”. I’ve searched and searched, and can’t find anything at all that seems to indicate that FIND can be scripted. I would think it should have been an incredibly simple script.
basically tellfinder find everywhere <>.
Does anyone have any ideas? I’m down to begging for help, after searching most of the day yesterday came up with zilch.
