      How to calculate an Applescript

      Post

      I want to use this Applescript to open the corresponding folder in the finder. A button in the layout triggers this script. First of I've pasted it in the native Applescript field and it works.

       

       tell application "Finder"

      activate

      try

      open folder "transportfm:90900-90999"

      on error ErrMsg

      display dialog ErrMsg

      -- display dialog "Sorry, can't find the folder. " buttons "Ok" default button "Ok"

      end try

      end tell

       

       

      Next step was to calculate the folder path in the script. I have a field in Filemaker which holds the path for each record.

      I've pasted the Applescript in Calculate Applescript and replaced the path with the field in Filemaker.

       

      BUT I get al sorts of errors (can't find field etc..)

       

      I guess the notation of an Applescript in calculate field uses extra ( /[]/.'" etc ).  Can somebody tell me what I'm doing wrong??

       

      Thank you!
