Title

An (apparently) old problem where the solutions aren't working for me...

Post

     Anyhow, just wanted to say "hello" from a generally very satisfied Filemaker Pro 11 user.

     I am trying to write a fairly long script that does a few conversions in applescript and then embeds an image into a container in a given record. The hard part (the applescript stuff) is working, but now I'm having problems with the apparently easy part.

     The applescript passes a variable (a POSIX path pointer to the file of interest) to Filemaker in a global field called pathfinder.

     From there, this is what I'm trying to do:

     Set Variable [$$pathvar; Value:Plasmid::pathfinder]

     Go to Field [Plasmid::plasmid map]

     Insert Picture ["$$pathvar"]

     Filemaker kicks back the following error:

     The file “blah.png” could not be found and is required to complete this operation.

     I can't seem to figure out what's going wrong here.

     Any help is hugely appreciated!
