use connect /online search function in endnote X1 with applescript


I’m currently writting an applescript (unsing endnote X1 and Mac OS X 10.5.4) in order to check if a pdf is already in library. The trick is right now to use a systematic formating of the name of the pdf. When the record is not present, I would like to retrieve it from pubmed or web of science for exemple using the connect / online search function of endnote. I would like to script this part so that I can search the document with authors, year and journal name. If I very well see how to do this manually, I would like to know if it’s possible to be done through applescript. I found nothing that look to be relevant in the dictionary of applescript editor. Nevertheless, there is little documentation and function “open” and “find” can maybe work on remote library.

I would appreciate any idea about this issue.

Thank you in advance
