Applescript to return a value

Can I make filemaker run an applescript and return a value?

For example:


tell app "Finder"

count every folder of desktop

end tell

If not, what is a work around to get the value returned from an applescript into a field?

You can set a field in FileMaker. E.g.

tell application "FileMaker Pro"

  set data cell "Number of Files" of current record to "X"

end tell

This is a script that would work outside of FileMaker. To make a script for the Perform AppleScript[] script step you need to omit the tell application "FileMaker Pro" block.
