Here is a script that I use to copy all the text in a field.
This works on Mac OS X and Windows (XP and 7).
select the text of field "myList"
wait 1 second
set the vscroll of field "myList" to 0 -- reset the scroll to the top of a long list
The select command highlights the text.
The wait command allows time for the user to get feedback
The select empty command removes the highlight
The vscroll is set to the top of a long list in the field.
With the text copied, it can be pasted into a different application.

"Select the text of fld fFieldName" seems to work.
