Return Value from Applescript

Question

4CardsMan

I am running a calculated Applescript from a Filemaker script.  I would like for the Applescript to return its result to Filemaker.  I tried get(ScriptResult) with no joy.

What is usually done if you want the result returned to FileMaker is to have the AppleScript write to FileMaker.  I haven't done it since the debut of $variables, honestly, but you could write to a global text field back then.  I don't AppleScript from a blank page, I'm too klunky with it to get anywhere that way, so I would google the syntax for telling FileMaker to set field X of Table Y to myResult as string or however it's expressed in AS'ese.  Then incorporate that into your AppleScript.  BTW, I think you want "tell me" when the script is being executed from within FileMaker.
