That's too smart.  For me that's the second thing I do, but when I do in 
addition to checking the result I also include a call to the sysError 
function so I can learn what the OS might be telling me.

The first thing I do is assume I mistyped the path, so I'll run 
something like this in the Message Box to double-check it:

   answer file "Select your file:"; put it
