I have written a script to export a series of container fields to an applescript-created folder on the client's desktop.
I could really use some help writing the "calculated applescript" to zip this newly created folder. It's only the applescript I'm having issues with - specifically the shell script portion.
"set the_src to \"" & Payrolls::JobNamefilepath & "\"¶
set the_src to quoted form of POSIX path of the_src¶
set the_dest to \"" & Payrolls::JobNamefilename & "\"¶
set the_dest to quoted form of POSIX path of the_dest¶
do shell script \"zip -jr the_dest . -i the_src\""
The zip file name = Payrolls::JobNamefilepath = Get (DesktopPath) & JobName & ".zip"
The file to be zipped = Payrolls::JobNamefilename = Get (DesktopPath) & JobName
The JobName and DesktopPath vary on the Job and the user so using Native Applescript is not an option (which is unfortunate since I have no issues scripting that.
I would be MOST appreciative of ANY tips on the proper scripting for the shell script command.
I am not interested in using a plug-in as I don't want to pay for it and I am sure this can be done without one.
