Make a Startup Script

We’ll create one more script for the database. FileMaker allows you to create two special scripts: a startup and a shutdown script. The former runs automatically whenever you open the database; the latter runs each time you close it. The purpose of both scripts is the same—to prepare the database and put it into a specific state in preparation for this or the next use. The startup script for this database switches to Browse mode, displays the Data Entry layout, ensures that all records in the database are visible and in the correct sort order, and then displays the most recently created record.

Choose Scripts > ScriptMaker. Remove the check mark from Include in menu and then click New.
