Is the problem selecting the file to read or actually reading it after
you have the file name? If it is a file selection problem it may be a
problem with a file filter which can be difficult in OS X. OS 9 and
earlier used file types & creator codes to identify files. OS X partly
uses these and partly using file extensions, so sometimes a file is not
recognized as being anything!
answer file "Select a file:" -- no filters
put it into tFile
put URL ("file:" & tFile) into fld 1
