Hi Paul,

Some-one else has already told you that "name" is a reserved word, so 
that it what breaks this script. An easy way to find out if you have 
used any reserved words is to "Colorize" your scripts. From the Script 
Editor, turn on "Live Colorization" in the View menu, of choose 
"Colorize" in the Script menu. Then any reserved words will be colored 
and you can see at a glance whether any of your variable names or 
function names are going to cause problems.
