Sending FileMaker variables to perform applescript function

Hi Everyone,

 

I have some variables set in a filemaker script and I am wanting to use those variables in the perform applescript function to send these to another application.

 

I have $session and $session_path variables set

 

Them i'm trying to use these in perform applescript (calculated):

 

"tell application " & "Capture One 10" & " to activate" &

"set newDoc to make new document with properties {name:" & $session & ", path: " & $session_path & "}" &

"end tell"

 

normally my applescript would be:

 

set sessionPath to "/mypath/Capture One Sessions"

set session to "test"

tell application "Capture One 10"

  activate

 

  set newDoc to make new document with properties {name:session, path:sessionPath}

 

end tell

 

I dont think im formatting the calculated applescript correctly.

 

Any help would be really appreciated.

 

Thanks

 

Richard
