    I am creating an automator action to make my own custom telnet launcher. A session is launched by using the code below.

    tell application "Terminal"
    	do script with command "telnet MC-5M-3750"
    	set number of rows of window 1 to 50
    	set number of columns of window 1 to 100
    	set custom title of window 1 to "MC-5M-3750"
    end tell
    Instead of having a separate automator app for each switch, I would like to put a variable in that spot that is set earlier in the automator workflow. Right now the work flow is.

    Ask for Text --> Set Value of Variable (named "target") --> Run AppleScript

    Anyone have ideas or solutions? I am new at using Applescript and this is where I'm stuck.
