Schedule calls in iCal directly from AddressBook

Not sure why that happened for you but it worked perfectly for me in X.3.2, i'd give it another shot. If you highlight the script from the page you can use the services menu to create the script in script editor automagically. :-)

Schedule calls in iCal directly from AddressBook

Well, it still doesn't work, but I did learn a new handy Services menu trick! Thanks! ...
Only, selecting that service menu item fires up Classic mode to launch the OS9 Script Editor. This may be because I downloaded Script Editor 2 for OSX. Anybody know a good way to tell the system to pass the copied text to that newer editor when the menu item is selected?

A thing I really enjoy on this site - I always learn something new (to me.... so I'm not as sharp as some...) and often it comes from left field relative to the tip itself... Services!! da*n!! This info will make scripts a useable reality for me. thanks.........

Replying to my own post.

The problem was there was an old OS 9 program called 'Address Book' on my hard drive and Script Editor was looking THERE for the AS dictionary.

Changed the name on the OS 9 program and it then compiled just fine.

Something so 2 apps with the same name is something to be aware of it seems.
