Open URL and correct variables syntax for opening a pdf file

Post

I've struggled with a seemingly simple script to open a pdf file.

The field has parcel numbers such as: 223-0-052-075

I need to open the tract map called 223-05.pdf

The URL should be "file:///Drive:/FM11.fm7/Book223/223-05.pdf" (works fine as a static URL)

I've got two variables:

     Set variable [$Book; Value:Left ( File::Field ; 3 )]

     Set variable [$Page; Value:Middle (File::Field ; 7 ; 2 )]

The 2 variables correctly generate 223 and 05.

My failed URL syntax is: Open URL [No dialog; "file:///Drive:/FM11.fm7/Book($Book)/($Book)-($Page).pdf"

Thanks and Happy New Year to all!
