Perform AppleScript Issue


I have an Applescript that works fine outside of Filemaker but is failing to compile inside Filemaker using the "Perform Applescript" script step.

The script opens a web page using Safari and copies the contents into the clipboard.  Then that content is written to a text file.  The relevant snippet is:

Set someText to the clipboard
Set myFile to open for access (path to documents folder as text) & "foo.text"
write someText to myFile
close access myFile

The compiler is failing at "write someText to myFile".   The error message is "Expected end of line, etc.. but found identifier.

Any ideas?
