      Open photo file from container field

      Post

      I have an applescript that opens an image in a container field. Has worked fine and dandy until recently when I made a filemaker, computer and operating system upgrade. I assume a FM change or a mac yosemite issue or both. Either way, the old script is:

       

      tellapplication "FileMaker Pro Advanced"

          setmyPicturetocell "Picture" ofthecurrent recordofdocument "MyDatabase"

      endtell

       

      That no longer works. I get an error message (#35). I assume that the "set" actually set the variable to the path of the image as I would then be able to open or copy the file using that path:

       

      make new folder at the desktop with properties {name:"Copied Images"}

      duplicate file myPicture to folder "Copied Images" replacing yes

       

      Or

       

      set myPicture to myPicture as string

          tellapplication "Adobe Photoshop CS6"

              activate

              open file myPicture

       

       

      Any suggestions as to what I should change the "set myPicture" line?
