    I'm trying to write an Applescript that will get finder to copy a file from one directory to another. It works for "normal" file names. However, when I use a filename that has a blank in the name, it fails. The message is

    Finder got an error: Can’t set folder "Macintosh HD:Users:FrederickOchs:Church:photos:Deleted Scans" to file "Macintosh HD:Users:FrederickOchs:Church:photos:Scans:VW0000 3.jpeg".

    The script is

    tell application "Finder"
    copy file "Macintosh HD:Users:FrederickOchs:Church:photos:Scans:VW0000 3.jpeg" to folder "Macintosh HD:Users:FrederickOchs:Church:photos:Deleted Scans"
    end tell

    Is there a way to get this to work?
