I heartly second that
Variables from FM can be used in a Calculated Applescript, but it's a real pain. The calculation must evaluate as text, for example, and given that Applescript, in certain circumstances ("do shell script" for example), expects the script to be in quotes, you have to use the Quote function as well as all the other " "s to evaluate properly. This is a clumsy and outdated method. I agree that the Applescript library needs work. Right now I'm spending far too much time getting FM to talk to Applescript to talk to the OS etc. There's got to be another way.
