I think Sarah's right, your code isn't checking to see if the file
already has the same extension. Add this to your "save" handler after
you get the user's file name:
put ".ext" into tExtension -- use yours
set the itemDelimiter to "."
if last item of tFileName <> tExtension
then put tExension after tFilename
Now you shouldn't get duplicate extensions and if the file exists it
will be overwritten.
