Hello new friends. I am sort of a newbie to the AppleScript language. I do have background in some other languages such as HTML, PHP, and Visual Basic so I have somewhat of an idea of how to go about doing this.
So what I need to accomplish is the following in order:
-Drag multiple files to the completed application/script
-Script will ask what the prefix is. Example “MXX”
-Have the script create a folder on the desktop with name “Sorted Files”
-In that folder create sub folders for each individual file dropped on the script with the naming convention of the folder below. The letter will be incremented per folder/file combination. When it hits Z it will start at AA and move on to BB and CC and so on. The number will always be the same.
(Job Prefix)+(Letter)+(“1”)+(“_”)+(File Name Without Extension)
-Have the script duplicate the file into that folder
-Take that same file and make another duplication of that file and add “ABC_” to the beginning of the file name
The folder structure would appear as below:
File1.ai & File2.ai → dropped onto the script at the same time
Any help would be appreciated. I have some of the script started and plan to copy some of my other scripts. Unfortunately I can’t post my script on here yet because it is at work right now. If you have any questions please let me know.
