    Hey Guys, Im new to writing any kind of code. I have the following script that Im trying to write that isnt working. I have a folder called "Finished" full of quicktime movies that I have uploaded to a server, and I'm trying make a list within text editor. I want text editor to place a url in front of each quicktime name in the folder, thus creating links to each one. If you guys can see whats wrong, and how to fix it, I would greatly appreciate it.

    on run {input, parameters}

    tell application "Finder"
    set Afolder to "Macintosh HD:Users:John:desktop:Finished" as alias
    set a_list to every file in Afolder as alias list
    repeat with i from 1 to number of items in a_list
    set a_file to (item i of a_list)
    tell application "finder" to run application "textedit"
    tell application "System Events" to perform keystroke "http://www.mysite.com/+a_list"
    end repeat
    end tell

    return input
    end run
