-FMScriptPreSort specifies a script to be processed after the current database action has been performed, but before the results have been sorted. Requires a single parameter which names a FileMaker Pro script.

This tag must be used in concert with a database action that results in records being found. The -FindAll action can be used if no specific records are required when the script is run.
