I have a script where I've run into the 1000-step limit. Part of the script reads an XML file which can take up to 200 steps if the information isn't found. This is a good place to off-load to another script. I'm trying to use the trigger application step to execute this .aef script but I can't get the script to execute. The trigger application step always falls through to the NotFound branch. I've tried many iterations of the path to the file which does work as a stand-alone script if called via a trigger. I've used just the file name with and without .aef. I've tried the fully qualified path to the file with and without the file extension. No luck.
What's the secret to getting another script to execute from a trigger application step? The documentation is a little sparse on details and there aren't any examples that I can get to work.
