      Substitute for 'perform applescript' for use on windows platform?

      Post

      We are operating a database in FMP 6 and have recently moved from mac to windows. Having a problem with a letter rendering script that uses the Perform AppleScript function. Can anyone suggest a substitution or other solution to this for this to work on windows? This is the subscript that uses the Perform AppleScript:

      If [ 1=1 ]
      Perform AppleScript [ Script Attachability: Script Text:
      "global fixedText
      tell current record
      set {s, r} to {cell "gCurrSubFieldName", cell "gCurrSubFieldData"}
      set t to cell "LetterText" as styled text
      my ReplaceText(s, r, t)
      set cell "LetterText" to fixedText
      end tell
      to ReplaceText(sWord, rWord, sText)
      try
      set fixedText to ""
      set TIDs to AppleScript's text item delimiters
      set AppleScript's text item delimiters to {sWord}
      set itemList to text items of sText as list
      set AppleScript's text item delimiters to {rWord}
      set fixedText to every item of itemList as string
      set AppleScript's text item delimiters to TIDs
      on error
      set AppleScript's text item delimiters to TIDs
      end try
      end ReplaceText
      " ]
      End If

      Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!!
