In File Maker, copying and pasting scripts are not quite easy as scripts never behave like texts, that can be copied and pasted in Filemaker script editor. If there are some modifications in some of the scripts in a file, then it is not needed to copy and replace the whole file in the client's live application, Modification should be done for that particular script. It happens that if some logic or new functionality is required to be implemented, then there is a need to create the scripts at the developer's end and QAing will done for that new modification, then that script again needs to be written in the Client's live application. Because of live data, the script written in the client's end can not be checked. As the script is written directly and not tested then that script may have some defects. Those defects will appear at the time of work for that functionality in live, which is a big problem. To prevent this kind of situation, "Import Script" option can be used.
By using import script, a script can be imported to any other system which are in network, Then script steps can be copied and pasted in the existing script at the client end.
