How to calculate an Applescript
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"
open folder "transportfm:90900-90999"
on error ErrMsg
display dialog ErrMsg
-- display dialog "Sorry, can't find the folder. " buttons "Ok" default button "Ok"
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??
