Try this:

put "#!/bin/sh" & cr into tScript
put "pw=" & quote & tPass & quote & cr after tScript
put "echo $pw | sudo -S - postgres" & cr after tScript
put "/usr/local/bin/postmaster -D /usr/local/pgsql/data -i" & cr after tScript
put shell(tScript) into tCheck  -- do the command & get the result

The tPass variable must contain your admin password.

Cheers,
Sarah
