Hi Viktoras,

You could set the defaultfolder to the path to your stack.

put the defaultFolder into myFldr
set the itemDel to "/"
set the defaultFolder to ¬
   item 1 to -2 of the effective filename of me
put myData into url "file:/my file.txt"
put myMoreData into url "file:/folder/file.txt"
set the defaultFolder to myFldr
