      Native Applescript won't compile in FM

      Post

      This script works just fine in AS but returns an error on the next to the last line "write filePathRel to thisFile" when I try to compile it in Filemaker. The error message is "Expected end of line but found identifier":

      set userFolder to (path to home folder) as text
      set filePathFull to (choose file) as text
      set filePathRel to text ((length of userFolder) + 1) thru (length of filePathFull) of filePathFull
      set supportFileFull to userFolder & "Library:Application support:Filemaker:Clippings DB location 4.txt"

      set thisFile to open for access supportFileFull with write permission
      set eof of thisFile to 0
      write filePathRel to thisFile
      close access thisFile

       

      I'd really like to know why the compilation is different via Filemaker.

      Thank You in advance for any help!
