    Help using Applescript to change file names

    Nerico

      I have a folder full of pictures that need to be renamed. They are currently named using the student's last name but should instead be named using first initial and then last name. I have all the student's names on a table in FM. The basic AppleScript would look like this

       

      "tell application "Finder"

      set the name of file "Abrams.jpg" of folder "2017_StudentPictures" to "A Abrams.JPG"

      end tell"

       

      How do I format it in FM to use the data from the current record?
