Copy Script Steps as text


     Hi, I hope someone out there can help. I would like to select all script steps from within a script copy then and paste then as text in any text file. I know that to get it right the only way is with the Database design report. But how can I paste what there is in the clipboard?? even if its a bunch o garbage... I know it can be done I remember downloading a software years ago that allows this to be done. I tried with an applescript:

set X to clipboard as text

But I get this error:

error "Can’t make clipboard of «script» into type text." number -1700 from clipboard to text

     Any expert on this? any tips? ;(


     Thank you for your time!
