Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will try to assit you today. May I ask, do you already have a script to do this, and require assistance getting the script to run, or do you need to have a script created?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
script created
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
i have looked around a bit but couldn't find anything that showed me how to do it
Expert:  GeekGal replied 1 year ago.

ok, I apologize, but I will not be able to create the script from scratch. There are too many variables, like the version of Excel that you are running, the version of FileMaker, your operating system, etc/. However, I am sure that one of other experts can help you. I will opt-out so that your question will be opened up to other experts. Have a wonderful day!
