Need to dial a telephone from a FileMaker database in Mac OS X? You can now with
aptly named “Dial Phone From FileMaker” AppleScript application.
Under Mac OS 9, FileMaker Pro databases could be configured to dial a phone number through the use of an internal script. However, this feature isn’t yet available in the Mac OS X version of FileMaker. “Dial Phone” is an external AppleScript application that overcomes this by offering the ability to extract a phone number from a field in a FileMaker Pro database, and then dial that number using Internet Connect.
The AppleScript may be triggered from a FileMaker database, using the “Send Apple Event” script. The cost of “Dial Phone” is US$15.
