  1. I think I found the issue.  Instead of using 

    assign tag yr to theFile

    I should be using 

    assign tag yr to note1 (which is the name of my note created in evernote)


    The modified script is as below:


    tell application "Evernote"



    set the_date to item 1 of inputAttributes


    set yr to text -4 thru -1 of ("0000" & (year of the_date))


    set note1 to create note from file theFile notebook {"INBOX"} tags {"TAG 1", "TAG 2", "TAG 3"}

    assign tag yr to note1

    end tell


    Thanks for your help. one last off topic  request, can you help me with a good source for learning apple scripting?


    Thanks again for the help.

  2. I have a similar kind of an issue, Instead of adding tags from OS X, I want the tag as year from document attributes "Creation date" using Hazel. The code I have written for Hazel is as below (** I am very new to apple scripting. below code is a copy and little modified version of what i found on internet)


    tell application "Evernote"



    set the_date to item 1 of inputAttributes


    set yr to text -4 thru -1 of ("0000" & (year of the_date))


    create note from file theFile notebook {"INBOX"} tags {"TAG 1", "TAG 2", "TAG 3"}

    assign tag yr to theFile

    end tell


    This code does create note in my INBOX folder, but only assigns tags "TAG 1", "TAG 3" and "TAG 3" . How can I add the year of document creation as tag. Any guidance will be really helpful.
