I am trying to modify the folder action import script so that it imports to a specific database. For some reason - and for just one database - despite knowing the ID of the database - I cannot make this happen. It works for other databases.
So I have tried using the uuid of the database but this piece of script
set uuidDatabase to (get database with uuid "6080973A-E7BF-412A-B137-D5AC3C2C855A")
works fine by itself but does not work in the context of the folder action
on adding folder items to this_folder after receiving added_items try tell application id "com.devon-technologies.thinkpro2" to launch set uuidDatabase to (get database with uuid "6080973A-E7BF-412A-B137-D5AC3C2C855A") repeat with theItem in added_items try set thePath to theItem as text if thePath does not end with ".download:" then tell application id "com.devon-technologies.thinkpro2" to import thePath to incoming group of uuidDatabase end if end try end repeat end try end adding folder items to
Anyone know why?
The error message is simply “Syntax Error Expected “given”, “into”, “with”, “without”, other parameter name, etc. but found “”".
