set Folder1 to folder ("IBM 01:Users:parents:Desktop:Foo")
If this folder doesn't exist it generates an error.
I do not understand your explanation, Andrew.
The folder "Foo" always exists...
This error is caught by
the 'try' handler and your script drops to the (non-existent) error
In other words the script doesn't get to the 'if not (exists...' line
because it was unable to get the folder in the previous script.
One way of rewriting this would be to:
tell application "Finder"
set Folder1 to folder ("IBM 01:Users:parents:Desktop:Foo:")
-- we get here if the above line fails
make new folder at folder "IBM 01:Users:parents:Desktop:Foo:" with
This version of the script does not compile...
Thanks a lot for your help anyway.
