I need some applescript help. I know nothing of Applescript and it is really hard to find tutorials... I'm not looking in the right place.

Does anyone have an apple script that would take a value from my database and simply create a new folder?

In my record I have the file path in one field, and the name of the new folder in another field.

I want to execute an applescript to create a new folder at the end of that path. It is on a networked volume (not on workstation running databse). Gosh, any help you can give me would be so appreciated. Also, if you have any links to good training for applescript that'd be great too... I might have to go get applescript for dummies and actually read the book.... so 1980! :)

Thanks again for any help you can offer.

Steve.

Steve,
Have you considered using ScriptMaster's Create Folder module?
