    Relatively newbie to ascripting and need help with a repeat problem.

    here's the script . . .

    on adding folder items to this_folder after receiving these_items

    repeat with i from 1 to number of items in these_items
    tell application "Finder"

    set this_item to item i of these_items

    set theFileName to the name of this_item
    set thenewName to the (theFileName & "test") as string
    set the name of this_item to thenewName

    end tell
    end repeat
    end adding folder items to

    Thanks in advance for any help
