Extracting a file name from a folder...
I built two scripts that work quite well for me. The first one deletes the contents of folders within our company network and uploads a new file. The second script runs around the network and verifies the file uploaded properly.
The problem I'm having is this: I have to manually put in the file to be verified every time it runs.
The folder the source file lives in never changes, the file name changes before every upload, but there is only one file in the directory. What I'm wondering is if there is a little chunk of code I can use to just extract the file name of whatever is living in that folder so I use it in my verification script? It really sucks eggs to hop into the code and change it manually so it can run on a nighttime schedule.
I've tried everything I could find on similar examples, but I can't get anything to do what I need.
Thanks in advance.

I'll go ahead and assume you're using AppleScript. Here's the basic idea of how you'd do that:
tell application "Finder" to get files of folder (POSIX file "/Path/to/directory")
tell application "Finder" to get files of folder "Path:To:Directory"
