Convert hex field into Unicode characters

I have hex fields (such as "U+33DA" etc.) in FM 7 and I want to paste this as the corresponding Unicode character in another field. (I 'calculated' the hex from the decimal number)

I haven't been able to use Applescript to do this in FileMaker, although this works as a stand-alone Applescript:

run script ("«data utxt0395» as Unicode text")

I can't figure out how to turn that into a ScriptMaker script to populate the field. Should it be a calculation field, a calculated Applescript, a script that calls an Applescript. I'm just confused, this should be possible using the native ScriptMaker functions but I'm not finding anything close.

Any help is appreciated

Thanks

OK, so I figured it out. I needed to use "as Unicode text" instead of "as Unicode string" which threw an error. (My original post was typed incorrectly.)

I was then able to write a script step that created and executed the correct Applescript to do the conversion and paste the character.
