Finding a file on a volume

I have a certain task to do from time to time where I have to locate a file on a mounted volume (an NT share), copy it to my desktop and make changes to it. I thought a ‘Find’ scripting addition would do this but so far, I haven’t had any luck with it. (At one point in time in OS8, the scripting addition ‘Find Document’ worked for me but not recently–unless I don’t have it installed properly.) Using the ‘Find’ menu item or Sherlock is such a drag–as is having to dig through several folders I’ve tried using the ‘get’ command with no luck. I looked through all the scripts under the ‘Finder’ category but no real luck. I must be overlooking something obvious. This must be a standard problem. Any suggestions to point the way?
