Specify Applicaction "Finder" sending an event (Mac OS X)

Post

FM 10, Mac OS X: 

 

Here my (probably) stupid question:

 

I want use an event to open a specific folder in the "Finder".

There is a Folder related to every record.

I select "open document" and using a Variable i have no problems to localize that folder on my Harddisc.

BUT how can I get the Finder to OPEN it ? ? ?

It would seem logical to click "specify Application" and then to choose the Finder, but this is not possible, because the Finder doesn't show up as an application. Actually, the Finder doesn't show up at all in the Finder!

So, how can I tell my event, that I want to use the Finder as specific application?

(I believe that should be possible using an Apple Script, but then, how do I  get  my Variable into  that Script?) 

 

Thanks for every help!
