    applescript Expected end of line, etc. but found identifier

    lauriehughes

      I am trying to run an applescript from within filemaker pro.

      Its more complicated then this but at the moment I can not even get past this .....

       

      set Loc_list_file to choose file with prompt "select the list export file"

      set Loc_list_file_read to open for access Loc_list_file

      set Loc_list_file_read_text to read Loc_list_file_read as string

       

      If I put this into the window where you put your script in FMP when I hit OK in order to save the script it says....

      Expected end of line, etc. but found identifier.

       

      and highlights this section....

      Loc_list_file_read

      from the 3rd line

       

      If I run it out of applescript editor its fine tho.

      Any thoughts?
