OF: Add an attachment to existing task? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
How do you add a file to an existing task?

I know how to create a new task with a new file attachment, but I couldn't find out how to attach it to a specific task.

The task I want do address is always the same (same name, same OF task id).


Thanks for any help.

This is a part of dave_m's script, modified by whpalmer4 (http://forums.omnigroup.com/showthre...ear#post118770:
Code:
 	tell front document
			
		set NewTask to make new inbox task with properties {name:file_name}
		tell the note of NewTask
			make new file attachment with properties {file name:this_item, embedded:pEmbedFile}
		end tell
			
	end tell
 
You should be able to get a reference to an existing task with something like:

Code:
set oTask to task id "fGboNvQt1Pr"
and then

Code:
tell the note of oTask
...
end tell
 
Rob,
thank you, your solution works. In my special case I just had to add "of front document".


How can I get a reference to an existing task using its name?

Code:
set myTaskName to name of task id "fGboNvQt1Pr" of front document
will get the name of my task correctly.



However, this code
Code:
set oTask to task id of front document whose name contains "Task name for attachments"
won't give me the task id.
 
I just found your post over here: http://forums.omnigroup.com/showthread.php?t=20311

Problem solved.
