Opening file paths with spaces in Windows


Recommended Posts

I have a large quantity of remote files and folders on a server connected to a database that I can manipulate quite easily using apple scripts and apple send events on my Macintosh computers. I am having problems however opening these same files from a pc. I have a calculation field that converts file paths to a PC compatable form (ex Z:\clients\289426 JoeS\file.pdf) and then a script that uses a Send Events script step to open the same files on the Windows machine. The problem is that Send Events does not appear to be compatible with file paths that contain spaces (I can open files that exist in directories with out spaces). Unfortunately renaming all my folders is not an option. Thanks in advance.
