Thank you for the post. For situations where I’d like the option to add files to the Opener without having to add External Data Sources, I find useful to have a table with records for each FileMaker remote file (field name, server address, etc.) that open using the “Open URL” script step pointing to a url using the fmp protocol (fmp://file_server_address/file_name), built as a calculation.

    This works great, especially if you do not want to pass authentication. Just remember to check the extra privilege to allow fmpurl in 16+.
