 Moving Pictures from MacOS to Windows

Doozy here:

With FMPro for Macintosh, there's an included applescript applet that lets
you autoimport images into a really simple database. This is great,
wonderful, never better.

Until you move that database over to a windows machine with FMPro on it. The
images can't display because the applescript applet only stores a reference
to the image file (I think). Not being a wizard with AppleScript, I figured
out how to change the filetype that the applet looks from from PICT to JPG,
but have no idea how to get this little marvel of a program to store the
entire graphic file, not just the reference.

PLEASE HELP! I am getting desparate and FileMaker's not been much help.

Thanks, in advance.

Did you actually look at the script at all? First of all you could learn
something about AppleScript that way and secondly, you would have been
able to solve your problem even if you don't know anything about
AppleScript.

If the script indeed stores a reference, then you should see "set ....
to reference of ...." in the script somewhere. Guess what you could do
to store the picture rather than the reference....   (You guessed it!
Remove "reference of" from that line!)
