Hi Josh,

you terminate the "repeat"-loop at the wrong place if your script is 
what you are using.

   ## declaring these vars as local is not really necessary
   ## a var is valid (and thus usable) in a complete handler.
   ## in this case from "on mouseup" until "end mouseup"

      put URL "file:\\ZZYZX\INTERFACE\Names.txt" into the_file

      end repeat ## !!! here is the right place to end that loop ;-)
