Can I have a button to invoke a script locally and pass values from a field into it?

I am assuming this isn't possible or not worth its work but I am curious. Whenever we have a new client/project we have to create a group of folder for them, and they are always the same group folder. So they are named "Client/Project + Folder Name". We use a really simple batch file to create the folders:

@echo off

md Folder_1 Folder_2 Folder_3

Though is it possible that I could invoke it through a Quickbase button and also pass a field value to it. So if the client name was say "Bob" it would pass it, and get the output Bob_Folder_1 or [Client/Project Name]_Folder_1.

It would be a major security issue if you could press a button on a web page and run a script on the local machine so browsers prevent this behavior.

Yea, my concern even if there had been a work around was people then being able to alter the script maliciously. I was mostly just curious as to what limitations Quickbase had client side
