Passing variables to an external AppleScript Mon Oct 07, 2019 11:15 am • by Dave61
I have an embedded script that I use on multiple folders which passes a string identified using a Match condition. The script acts on the file and the variable using "theFile" and "item 1 of inputAttributes" respectively.

To simplify maintenance I would like to use an external thread but cannot figure out how the access the two pieces of data.

I have tried referring to them as "item n of input" but that doesn't work.

You mean an external script, right? In that case, check the help. It shows the handler you need to add to the script for it to work.
