 Reading/Writing to a file from Filemaker 5.5
I want to make decisions and edit/delete records depending on what's in a
multi-line plain text file.
Can anyone recommend any plug-ins (preferably FREE) or any other way to
achieve this?
Thanks in advance

The easiest way would probably be to set up a script that imports the
text file into a global field and then looks at the field's new contents
to determine which records to edit/delete.
