The simplest way to accomplish this is the following...


    global fileToOpen

    on startup
        put $1 into fileToOpen
    end startup

    on openStack
        if fileToOpen is not empty then
            -- Insert the code you are using
            -- to open the file
        end if
    end openStack

I hope this helps.
