filepath script broken since moving to 10.2

ok,

i have this database in which each record references a sound file on a hard drive using a text field (filepathtext) as its file path.this script plays the sound via quicktime. Now it all works fine in OS9 and OSX 10.1.5 ,but since upgrading to 10.2 i now just get a quicktime -43 error ,file not found...

has apple messed around with filepath names etc etc with 10.2 and if so how do i change the syntax to repair it

my original file path for example would be :"sfx1:fx:az:az01:az-01/01" and works fine in older OS's

here is my script :

tell application "QuickTime Player"

launch

activate

tell Application "FileMaker pro"

Set Myfile to cell "Play Sound Global"

end tell

open file myfile

rewind every movie

play every movie

tell Application "Finder"

set visible of process "QuickTime Player" to false

end tell

end tell

any ideas??

thanx

I believe your problem is with the convention OS X now uses with file paths. Since it runs with BSD in the background, it also uses the "/" to separate files/folders to define the path. You have "sfx1:fx:az:az01:az-01/01" as a file path. Try renaming it to "sfx1:fx:az:az01:az-01-01" or "sfx1/fx/az/az01/az-01-01" paying attention to change your "/" in "...01/01" to some other character. This should do the trick for you.
