I am using apple scripts with my database to manage my file folders. The record in the database hold the names of the folders.

I am using apple scripts to create and delete folders, but I am having some trouble because I cannot figure out how to write a caculation which will export the " character.

I want to create an caculation field that outputs the following:

tell application "Finder"

delete "volumeX:folderY:fileZ"

end tell

the path looks like this in the caculation:

"volumeX:" & fieldY & fileZ

------------------------------------------------------

I have tried to use 2 global auto enter fields at the begining & ending of my caculation which contain the data:

field 1:

tell application "Finder"

delete "

field2:

"

end tell

The propblem with this is that my database resets these fields every time I close the file.

What can I do???
