Moving a record from one group to another

I’ve been trying to create an applescript to move one or more selected records (in the Inbox, say) into a particular group/folder (‘Receipts’).

I can’t really get anything to work. I’ve looked through the example scripts, but they haven’t helped.

Attempt included:
set theGroup to (the record whose name is “Receipts”)
move this_item to theGroup

Should I be using the ID? I’m not getting any error messages fed back either, so I’m a bit lost. Can anyone help out?


the “Move To Done” example script (see folder “Examples” in scripts folder of disk image) should be a good start:

tell application "DEVONthink Pro"
		set theDatabase to current database
		set theContents to contents of theDatabase
		set theGroup to create location "/Done"
		-- set theGroup to parent named "Done" of theDatabase
		repeat with theContent in theContents
			if state of theContent is true and state visibility of theContent is true then move record theContent to theGroup
		end repeat
	end try
end tell
