Using standalone scripts as resources

I am continuing to add onto a project that I started in October. It is essentially a GUI for a MySQL database. I am to the point where I want to add a standalone script that functions just fine already. It would be called by a button click.

Do I drop the .scpt file into the resources folder and call it from there? If so, is it just a run script (path to resources & XXX.scpt) command?

Do I copy it over and save it as a .applescript file and just associate it with the button click?

Does it matter?

That should work fine, Craig.
