Perhaps this belongs in the Programming forum, or somewhere else. If the mods feel it so, please, by all means, move it! I'm wondering if the following is possible with Automator, or how I would go about creating this otherwise. I'm looking for an app or script that will help me add Spotlight comments to help with a recently implemented system of job tracking at work. Here's what I'd like it to look like: Get selected finder items Prompt with question: "What is the job number for this project?" Copy answer to Spotlight Comments for selected items I can do the first part without a problem. I can even create a dialogue box asking me for the tracking number (using a Text Edit action), but I can't figure out what to do from there. If I use the Spotlight Comments action, it only allows for me to put something in ahead of time, rather than asking for something new each time. Ideally, I'd like to have an icon on my desktop where I could drop all my files onto, and have them updated that way. If it matters, the job tracking numbers look like this: 3-0001, 3-0002, etc. Thanks for any and all ideas.
