Using a backup of course.. You might try something simple like..

repeat for each line tline in the script of stack "yourscripttarget"--
wherever your script is.
   if tline contains "set the unicodetext of fld " & quote & "fDECODE"&
quote & " to (numtocodepoint(" then
      replace "set the unicodetext of fld " & quote & "fDECODE"& quote & "
to " with "put " in tline
      put " into field " & quote & "fDECODE" & quote after tLine
      put tline & cr after tNewScript
   else
      put tline & cr after tNewScript
   end if
end repeat
delete the last char of tNewScript

set the script of stack "yourscripttarget" to tNewScript



On a very small test scale it seems to work.  Curious though, is the
current method working?
