Hi Ghendo, The following code will create a zip archive in a similar way to the finder. It uses applescript's 'do shell' command along with the shell's 'zip'. An example is below, you can replace the path to the input file and the output zip archive with whatever you want to zip and what you want the archive to be called. do shell script "zip - /Users/andy/testfile.txt > /Users/andy/archive.zip" Let me know if this answered your question, and if you require any clarification, don't hesitate to ask. Regards, Andy
