Telling the finder to move a PDF to a new folder prior to creating a link to FileMaker
I've created a simple database to keep track of my reading notes in which I have a script that links each record to the PDF of the given article (using the "insert image"), so that I can open it from within the database. Now, considering the number of PDF's I have to manage, I would like to move those that are linked to my database from a folder named "PDF to link" to a folder named "PDF linked" as I create the link to my database records. The AppleScript for this latter option goes as follows:
tell application "Finder"
set _file to choose file with prompt "Select the PDF to move" without multiple selections allowed
move file _file to folder "PDF linked" of folder "A" of disk "B"
set _PDFpath to _file
tell application "FileMaker Pro"
That Applescript works pretty well, since the selected files are moved each time to the desired folder. The troubles begin when I try to create a link in FileMaker to the PDF that I just selected and moved. For I don't want to need to select that same PDF again. Instead, I want FileMaker to create the link based on the new pathway of the file I selected a second ago. Hence the step "set _PDFpath to _file". But I just can't figure out how to make FileMaker use that information to create the link to the PDF. Anybody knows how?
