I can't seem to make Rev retrieve text and put it in a field. When I
[put URL "file:/Users/laguer/Documents/Revolutioní/exp í/test.2" into
field "Field 1"]
All I get is a blinking cursor in Field 1.
I checked the path file by using the "answer file" cmd:
answer file "Import text from what file:" of type "TEXT"
if it is empty then
put "Bingo!" into field "Field 1"
exit to top
put it into field "Field 1"
When I use this and select the file "test.2", I get the path to the
file "test.2" in Field 1, not the contents of the file.
It doesn't work the other direction either. When I try to use the
put "Bingo!" into URL "file://Users/laguer/Documents/Revolutioní/exp
There is no change in the file test.2.
So, I suspect that I'm doing something very basic wrong...but what?
