While I don't have 6,000 Finale files, I do have quite a few - and if the manner you suggested Finale handle the translations into 2008 happened I would've been in bad shape. You see, Finale 2008 will NOT run on the latest greatest Mac Pro (Dual Quad - 16 gig ram, etc.) which is my main computer, but it will corrupt a file if you try to open one by double clicking. I've been in touch, but at this point, either I'm the only person using the program with the computer combo, or something is wrong on this end.

Robert,
Awesome! It's working as I type. You just saved me lots of time. How did you learn to program Finalescript?

Take care. Scott

Hi trumpetsaj,

You may try this script:

batch process subfolder
open finale files
save
close

Choose your main finale files folder (HD root directory?) as the batch folder... and go out for long dinner!

Personallly I think it's crazy that Finale only opens earlier versions of Finale files in untitled documents and then refuses to write over the original document without re-naming them. That's lots of wasted time and energy - especially when the computer has 6000 Finale files on it - as mine does!

Has any brillaint person come up with a version of the Finalescript Plug-in that can search the complete hard drive and replace all Finale files with 2008 versions of the files? Even replacing the existing file versions in folders, as is now possible, is still an hour or two process for me.

Please post the script if you have it. Thanks.
