Ken,

Yes, I am bound to use  FMP. All the volunteers at the campaign 
headquarters use FMP to do data entry and construct walking lists, 
etc.

I am still surprised that AppleScript doesn't do the normal thing and 
just return a comma/return (or tab/return) delimited text file 
instead of the  curly brackets. Thank God there are not curly 
brackets in the database.

Jim
