Hi,

I haven't had a chance to try out the AppleScript/AppleEvents approach that 
was suggested for finding the finder name.  However, yesterday while working 
on something else I noticed that there is a FB ToolBox Global Variable called 
_finderName that according to the FBII manual (page 243 in the Handbook) 
contains "the name of the finder: Length byte + up to 15 Characters".  How 
does one access the finder name using this global variable?  I take it that I 
can't just do something like this:

Dim finderName$ 15
finderName$ = [_finderName]

Hopefully,

James Schumacher
