    Hey guys,

    I am working with apples automator, and script editor to get a workflow together. Basically, I have a bunch of actions I have to do and it ends with an e-mail message being sent out with some info. I need a script that will prompt the user to fill in the e-mail address's they want to send this message to, BEFORE the workflow beings. That way, the user can walk away from the computer while the workflow is running. Then when it is time to fill in the e-mail addresses in the script, it will reference the info that was filled in by the user. I know it has something to do with variables, or variables lists. But to be honest, I've never written code, so I'm still trying to figure out what a variable is, and how to use them. If you guys have any advice or examples I could reference, that would help out so much. Thanks for your guys patience and understand with my dumba@@.
