    Hi,
    I am scripting Fetch 4.0.3 under 10.3.9. All operations work correctly except the put into command. I have tried all variations and combinations of this command and all return the same message "Fetch 4.0.3 got an error: Can't supply the requested type for the data (-10009). I am trying to load up jpg files created in photoshop, and have tried Auto, Raw Data, binary etc with no success. Unfortuately the put command doesn't show in the script editor in record mode so I can't check formats that work.
    Kind regards,
    lectriclite

    Thanks for reporting the problem with Fetch not recording the put command. That bug will be fixed in Fetch 5. In the meantime you can record a put into command by dragging a file to the Fetch transfer window.

    Could you post the script, or at least the line that is failing?

    Thanks,

    Thanks Jim. It appears as though I was trying to do too much in this area. Script is now working. By the way the both the Put folders and files from the menu bar and the put files button in the transfer window do not record when the script editor recorder is on. My last message may have given the impression that only the menu bar command was not working.

    Kind regards,
