[OS X TeX] MakeIndex and periods in file names

Dear all,

the file name "Script2014.04.15.tex" works fine with TeXShop and 
BibTeX, but calling MakeIndex generates the message

Input index file Script2014.04.15 not found.
Usage: makeindex [-ilqrcgLT] [-s sty] [-o ind] [-t log] [-p num] 
[idx0 idx1 ...]

on the console window. Of course, I can remove the periods in the 
file name, but maybe there is an expert around who can adjust 
MakeIndex to accept the such a file name.

Happy TeXing,
