Native Applescript won't compile in FM


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!
