Good Day!

I quite a newbie in applescripting... I have created a script that resaves a .tif file into .eps using illustrator 10. What I want is the user will select the tiff original folder and the eps destination folder... it selects all the tif files in the original folder open it in illustrator resaves it into eps and move that eps to the destination folder. On my script the eps file staying on the original folder.

set the topLevelFolder to choose folder with prompt "Source Folder?" as string
tell application "Finder"
set AllFiles to name of every file of folder topLevelFolder as list
end tell

set myPath to choose folder with prompt "Destination folder?" as string

tell application "Finder" to set fileName to AllFiles

tell application "Adobe Illustrator 10"
repeat with i in AllFiles
set OpenThisDoc to ((topLevelFolder as string) & i) as alias
open OpenThisDoc
if (count of documents) > 0 then
set myInteractLevel to user interaction level
set user interaction level to never interact
set myPath to file path of document 1 as string
if myPath ends with ".tif" then
repeat with myPage from 1 to 1
open alias myPath with options {page:myPage}
set myNewPath to myPath
repeat with myCharNum from (count of characters of myNewPath) to 1 by -1
if character myCharNum of myNewPath = "." then
if myCharNum > (count of characters of myNewPath) - 5 then set myNewPath to (text of characters 1 thru (myCharNum - 1) of myNewPath) as string
exit repeat
end if
end repeat
set myNewPath to myNewPath & ".eps"
save document 1 in file myPath as eps
close document 1 saving no
end repeat
end try
end if
set user interaction level to myInteractLevel
end if
end repeat
end tell
thanks in advance
