Title

Apple Script Delete File

Post

     Good Day,

     I would like to delete a file after I have imported the information from a daily download to drop box. In reading several other posts it seems not that difficult however I have not been able to get it to work. One of the posts has this formula

tell application "Finder"
     delete file "path:to:file"
     empty trash
end tell
tell application "Whatever" to activate

     I have not been successful with even the simplest of paths always getting an error. I am on os 1o.6.8 with FM11 advanced

     the file path to delete is "MyHD/Bookalaka/Dropbox/Downloads/Wine_Log2012.xls"

     I have also tried a test file

     tell application "Finder"
         delete file "MyHD/Desktop/test.fp7"
         empty trash
     end tell
      

     Thanks for the help.
