If I put an AppleScript Mac style path into a script Variable, I can use it in a Perform AppleScript script step, if I use the (•) Calculated AppleScript option. The only difficulty is with getting quote marks and paragraph returns in where necessary. I used 2 different methods for the quotes, as seemed easiest to me.
"tell application \"Finder\"" & ¶ &
"open " & Quote ( $mac_path ) & ¶ &
"activate" & ¶ &
Thank you for helping!
The idea of using the AppleScript Steps in the Variable is very convincing and I tried it out.
I was definitively getting closer to a solution, but the Script did never accept the complete path.
I used then the way a path is described when I use the Script Editor
tell application "Finder"
make new Finder window to disk "Transfer"
set target of Finder window 1 to folder "FolderName" of folder "2100" of disk "Transfer"
I have copied this into my Variable, placing very carefully every return "¶" and using a Global Field for the quotation marks, and - of course - replacing the folder names by calculated values... AND IT WORKS!
Thanks again, Fenton Jones!
